The entire weekend was beautiful with mild temperatures and a lot of sunshine, but luckily, there are bigger changes ahead. As some much need rain and thunderstorms are likely to develop starting on Monday night and into Tuesday.
For Monday, expect a few clouds to a partly cloudy sky and near average temperatures are to continue. Then heading into Monday night there is a risk of severe weather possible in the southwest region of the state. As the system continues to move to the northeast, the much needed rain and thunderstorms will continue through the day on Tuesday. There is uncertainty in the amount of rain and where exactly most of it will fall. It can be sporadic to widespread at times as a low pressure system is passing through the area and moisture is moving in from the south. Winds will be gusty at times, especially in the North, once the system does move out completely on Wednesday. The later half of the week will be drier and temperatures are to stay right around average as high pressure will move in from the west. Average for this time of year is in the mid 70s for a high and lows near 50 degrees.
Monday, showers and thunderstorms possible later in the day along with highs in the lower 80s and winds gusting to near 30 mph and sustained from the east at 10-20 mph.
Monday night, showers and thunderstorms likely throughout the night and lows near 60 degrees. Winds will be east at 10-20 mph and gusting to near 30 mph at times. Gusts can be strong within the thunderstorms. Chance of rain 70%.
Tuesday, a cloudy day along with rain and thunderstorms likely. Some storms may have the potential to be severe. Winds will be from the east then shifting south at 5-15 mph and gusty at times. Highs will be around 80 degrees. Chance of rain 50%.
