A bit cooler today. Temperatures will only warm to the upper 70s to low 80s, but that is where we should be for this time of year. Some communities will be in the low 70s. Overall, the state will have a big range in temperatures. We will have a chance for some showers and storms later today. It is actually looking a littler drier than it was before. Definitely won’t be a washout, but we’ll have plenty of cloud cover.

The beginning of the work week is looking a bit on the unsettled side. We are keeping a 20-40% chance for wet weather Monday through Friday. Highs will warm to the low and mid 80s.
