We’ll pick up on Monday where we left off on Sunday with scattered showers and storms across the area in the afternoon. These storms will pop-up and have the potential to bring heavy rainfall at times. We’ll have another quarter to half inch in many locations by the time Saturday ends. It won’t rain the entire day, but it will be a mostly cloudy sky.

Limited rain chances on Tuesday will help us dry out just a little bit. Tuesday we’ll stay in the 90s.

More spotty to scattered rain chances for much of the week ahead as temperatures say in the low to mid 90s.
