Afternoon storms likely today, cooling this week

Posted: Updated:

Good Monday.  This morning we are looking at a mild start with patchy areas of fog around the area.  Temps will be in the upper 50s and low 60s as you head out the door.  This afternoon the high will be a little lower than it has been, climbing to 79 degrees.  Through the day, clouds will build and thunderstorms will develop.  Look for scattered storms through the afternoon and into tonight.  While the risk for severe storms is very low, we do need to be on the lookout for gusty winds that could produce damage in some of the stronger storms.  Heavy rain will also be a possibility.  Widespread we can expect about 1" to 2" through this evening.

Overnight the storms will taper off, and we should dry out a bit Tuesday with partly cloudy skies in the afternoon and a pleasant high of 76.  Wednesday will be dry also with cooler weather really settling in.  The low Wednesday morning will be in the upper 40s and low 50s.  The afternoon high will only get to 70.  Wednesday night, another front will roll through bringing a few more showers and storms for Wednesday evening.

Thursday will be dry and cool.  Temps will range from 49 in the morning to 69 in the afternoon under partly cloudy skies.  Friday will be much the same, only a bit more sunshine as we wrap up the week.

This weekend will be warm and sunny.  Saturday we will start at 48 in the morning and climb to 83 in the afternoon.  Sunday will be a bit warmer as we start out at 55 and climb to a toasty 87.
