Detailed Forecast

This afternoon: There will likely be a few more breaks in the clouds today, and with slightly more sunshine we'll have the energy needed to increase the intensity of the storms that pop up during the afternoon.  Another round of scattered heavy rain producing storms are expected, and we cannot rule out an isolated severe storm either.  Any areas that experienced heavy rain over the past few days will be vulnerable to flooding, so we'll monitor that threat closely.  High temperatures will stay cooler, with 70s and 80s for most. Our local mountains will see highs in the 60s and 70s.

Tonight: Any evening storms should settle during the overnight hours, although we can't rule out a lingering stray shower/storm. These showers will give way to mostly cloudy skies. Lows will dip to the 50s throughout the lower elevations and the 40s for the high country.

Extended:  Highs will be in the low 70s and 80s through Thursday, and a chance for heavy rain will exist during this time period also. By Friday, the storm system prompting this pattern will move east allowing high pressure to build throughout the region.  This will allow for temperatures to warm into the 80s and 90s across the lower elevations and 70s for the mountain locations.
