  • Showers likely for most overnight-Monday
  • Heavy rain will lead to localized flooding chance
  • High temperatures will be 10-15 degrees cooler than normal

REST OF TONIGHT

Overnight temperatures will read in the upper 50s & low 60s. Isolated heavy downpours and some rumbles of thunder are possible tonight. These showers and storms will set us up with a soggy start to our work week.

UNSETTLED & COOL TO START THE WEEK

We’re expecting more widespread showers with some storms likely on Monday. An isolated strong or severe storm is possible Monday if everything lines up. Right now the biggest threats are heavy downpours and strong winds. Rainfall rates should be in the .50 to 1.50+ inch range on Monday which could pose a threat for localized flooding throughout the day on Monday.

Temperatures on Monday will be much cooler than normal in the 60s and 70s.

We hold onto the chance for scattered showers on Tuesday. High temperatures will remain cooler than normal in the 60s and 70s again. High pressure starts to build in mid-week helping us to see drier conditions push in. Temperatures will remain cooler than normal throughout the rest of the week with highs mainly hitting in the 70s and low 80s.

Showers will  be around the region late week, but most of us will be dry.
