Monday At The Bus Stop
Monday brings an ECLIPSE! Monday also brings a slight rain chance, but, any rain would come in the form of a small short lived shower/storm. If you are one of the unlucky ones, it should be a situation to where you could drive to another area close by and get a view of the Eclipse. Any storms will be very isolated and scattered with clearing areas in between. Most areas look OK to get that view!
- A cold front will bring up the rain chances in the afternoon and evening of Tuesday. A big cool down comes in behind the resulting front making for great weather Wednesday evening through next weekend!
