Afternoon highs will climb into the lower 70s by Monday and Tuesday despite the increasing cloud cover. Mostly cloudy skies will return by Monday evening ahead of our next rain maker on Tuesday.

The overnight models shifted the heavier rain to the northwest. We will keep an eye on this shift and see if we see any shifts back to the southeast.

That cold front will arrive Tuesday, bringing in the on and off rain for the day. While severe weather is not anticipated, a few storms could mix in at times. Rain will be heavy at times, especially to the northwest where the axis of heavy rain continues to sit.

Highs on Wednesday will remain above average, despite the cold front moving through. We will see the mid 60s on Wednesday with mostly cloudy skies sticking around. It'll be hard to see any clearing throughout the day as yet another system looks to bring rain chances on Thursday.

Our next system arrives Tuesday with rain chances expected at times throughout the day.
