FORECAST:

Showers will be ending overnight giving way to mostly clear sky. Lows Monday morning will drop into the low 70s. Now that a front has moved through dew points will be in the 60s which means much lower relative humidity. With lots of sunshine, highs will rise into the low 90s.

Rain chances will be low Tuesday through Thursday so expect mainly dry conditions with the best chance of rain being in our southern communities. Lows will be in the upper 60s to around 70 with highs in the upper 80s to hear 90.

Another cold front will bring an isolated chance of storms on Friday with even low humidity and plenty of sunshine Saturday. Lows going into next weekend will be near 70 with highs in the upper 80s under a partly cloudy sky.
