Weather update: More rain

Posted: Updated:

Most of the rain is over for tonight, but a few spotty showers or an isolated thunderstorm may redevelop overnight or on Monday morning. Lows tonight will be in the middle 70s.

A warm and muggy air mass will continue across our area for the first half of the work week. I expect the risk for heavy rain and storms to return Monday afternoon and continue into Tuesday as a weak cold front pushes into our area. I don't expect any severe weather, but heavy rain and flash flooding is a concern due to the slow movement of storms and the heavy tropical rains.

Monday high temperatures will reach the lower 90s, but with such humid air in place, the heat index will range from 100-105 Monday afternoon.

Heavy rain and storm chances continue into Tuesday. By mid to late week, the pattern will begin to change. Rain chances will go down, while afternoon highs return to the mid to upper 90s by next weekend.
