Scattered Thunderstorms Tuesday

Weather Update – 10:30 p.m. Monday

A few more showers could fall overnight with mostly cloudy, if not overcast, skies. Severe weather isn’t likely overnight. Expect this to keep temperatures from cooling much overnight, we may only bottom out in the lower 70s at some locations by sunrise at 6:15 a.m. Tuesday morning.

More showers will return early Tuesday with breaks of sunshine during the afternoon leading to highs in the upper 80s and lower 90s. Some thunderstorms could once again produce heavy rain and frequent lightning at times with gusty winds possible. There’s a chance for more rain on the way but one of the more noticeable changes will be with increasing humidity leading to temperatures feeling like they’re over 100°F on Thursday at times in the afternoon. Stay cool!
