The severe threat has ended for our area, but lingering showers will still continue into the late hours of the night. Muggy conditions could lead to a bit of fog Sunday morning with lows falling into the 60s to near 70 overnight.

The front will sink farther south Sunday setting us up for another afternoon with scattered showers and storms. We will also see more clouds and some slightly cooler temperatures for Sunday. It appears the best chance of rain will be south of 460 with more heavy rain likely. Given the wet conditions from Saturday in some areas, localized flash flooding may occur Sunday. The severe threat isn’t as high, but we still could see some stronger storms.
