Temperatures topped out in the upper 80s to lower 90s under mostly sunny skies Monday, and Tuesday looks to be more of the same temperature-wise with a little increase in cloudiness during the day. An Air Pollution Action Day has been declared.
Clouds thicken Tuesday night with a good chance of showers or thunderstorms spreading into our area from the west by Wednesday morning, ahead of a low pressure system developing in the central plains. On and off thunderstorm downpours are likely Wednesday into early Thursday, and even with the lack of recent moisture there could be a few localized flooding problems with anywhere from 1-3 inches total rainfall expected.
Low pressure will pull off to the east later Thursday, but there still could be a slim chance of thunderstorms Friday before high pressure takes over on Saturday. Next chance of rain looks to be Sunday night into Monday.
