FORECAST DISCUSSION:

Good Monday night,

Rain and storms will continue on and off overnight tonight, with heavy rain being the main threat overnight tonight with lows dropping only into the middle 60s. On Tuesday expect showers early, with a few rumbles in the morning, with pop-up storms into the afternoon, drier air will return late day on Tuesday. Highs will top in the upper 70s.

Wednesday expect partly cloudy skies, with a chance of thundershowers late in the day. Highs on Wednesday will be closer to normal in the upper 70s. Better chance of rain and some rumbles expected overnight Wednesday night into early Thursday morning. Most of the showers should be wrapping up by or just after daybreak.

Thursday skies will turn partly cloudy with highs back into the upper 70s during the day. The dry air will give us a nice night overnight into Friday with a mix of sun and clouds to start the day on Friday with rain and storms moving back into the area late in the day on Friday.

Friday night we will have a chance for a few more storms, and a few showers as a weather system passes just to our south. I do not anticipate a severe weather threat with these storms as of now, based on timing, and location of the weather system. Drier air will return for the 2nd half of the day on Saturday starting from the north and west and pushing southeast.

Highs on Friday and Saturday will be in the upper to middle 70s. We will see highs remain on the nice side on Sunday with sunshine and highs in the middle 70s. Expect a few more clouds returning on Monday of next week with highs back in the upper 70s.
