Storms diminish tonight, more rain around tomorrow
Tonight: The flash flooding potential is beginning to end for our area, as the heaviest activity continues to push eastward. Showers and thunderstorms will begin to wind down after sunset. Overnight, besides a few spotty showers, most will be dry under a mostly cloudy sky. Low temperatures will be in the low 70s.
Tomorrow: Our weather pattern will begin to back off to a more typical rhythm of mainly afternoon, scattered showers and thunderstorms. Rain coverage will be around 60% on Monday, with high temperatures returning to the upper 80s.
Looking Ahead: The number of showers and thunderstorms will start to back down by mid-week, and especially by Thursday. That, of course, means high temperatures reaching or getting close to 90 degrees once again. As it stands right now, Friday and Saturday look to be the driest days of the week, with more widespread showers/storms potentially returning next Sunday.
