Temperatures will continue to be well above average into Sunday with highs returning to the 80′s. A few isolated showers are possible during the day tomorrow, but better chances for rain are likely into the evening/overnight hours. A cold front will sink southward across the area tomorrow allowing showers and potentially storms to spread across the area tomorrow night and into Monday.

This front will allow temperatures to be cooler and more seasonal into next week with highs returning to the 60′s and lows in the 40′s. Showers are expected into Tuesday before quieter conditions could return by the middle of the work week. A few inches of rainfall could be accumulated over the next several days which could lead to minor flash flooding, especially in our northern/northwestern counties.
