A moist southerly flow combined with low pressure initiated clusters of strong to locally severe storms Sunday afternoon and evening, some containing strong winds that knocked down trees, coupled with flooding downpours of 2 to 3 inches in places.

A slow-moving upper-level system with a trailing cold front will cross the region through Monday, with lingering showers ending from west to east during the afternoon. Temperatures will be a little cooler, with highs in the mid- to upper 70s.

Skies will clear on Tuesday, with less humidity, as high pressure builds in for the midweek, leading to seasonally warm temperatures in the mid-80s and plenty of sunshine through the remainder of the workweek.
