Highs on Monday will still warm into the middle 70s ahead of the afternoon rain and storms. The rain will push through from northwest to southeast throughout the afternoon, liking lasting a solid 2-4 hours in most locations.

It will be a bit breezy all day, but the storms could bring some strong gusty winds with them. There is a very low chance of a strong to severe storm.

Behind the front will be much cooler air for the middle of the week. Tuesday’s highs will only be in the 50s with a lot of cloud cover and scattered rain showers. A rumble of thunder is possible as well. Highs moderate a bit for Wednesday into the 60s and warm even more for Thursday into the lower 70s.

Both days continue to bring chances for showers and a few storms, but the best chance of rain during that stretch will come Tuesday night and Wednesday.

Additional chances for showers and storms exist Friday, but much like Thursday it will not rain everywhere or rain all day long. That is the messaging for the entire week really. No day is a start to finish rain kind of day, but the chances of getting wet are very high over the course of the workweek.

This unsettled weather pattern looks to continue for the upcoming weekend. A strong cold front will likely bring a high chance of rain and storms Saturday night into Sunday, but there could be some showers and storms on Saturday ahead of it.

Temperatures will drop and come back up this week.

Temperatures will go from near 80 on Saturday to the 50s and 60s come Sunday. With a front like that, we can’t rule out some sort of severe weather threat materializing. That’s something we will have to watch for as the week progresses.
