Weather

Storms will continue as the upcoming week begins.

Tonight: Storms will continue to move through the area through the early night. After midnight, skies will be mostly dry, but there is a slight chance for isolated showers. Skies will be mostly cloudy otherwise, and winds will be light. Low near 74.

Tomorrow: The day will begin with dry skies, but around 2 p.m., storms will begin moving into the area. These will continue through about 10 p.m. We could see a few pockets of heavy rain embedded in thunderstorms, so keep this in mind, especially if you live in an area prone to flooding. Also, remember to head indoors if you hear thunder or see lightning. Temperatures will be cooler than average with highs in the upper 80. It will, however, be very muggy.Winds will be westerly at 5-10 mph. High near 87.

Extended: Storms will start the workweek on Monday. They will begin around noon and continue throughout the day. They will be a little more widespread than today’s storms. Temperatures will be in the 80s, but it will be very humid. Expect similar conditions on Tuesday. Scattered storms will move through our region, and temperatures will once again be in the 80s. Wednesday is when we’ll finally get a little bit of relief from the rain. Temperatures will also be warmer with highs in the 90s. This is where our temperatures will stay as we end the week. The days will also be mainly dry with just a slight chance of isolated showers.
