A few downpours will be possible in the morning Sunday, but like Saturday, the better chance for scattered rain & storms arrives in the afternoon thanks to daytime heating. Coverage looks to be a bit less compared to what was observed Saturday, but still keep the rain gear handy and have a backup plan to take celebrations indoors if needed. Like the past several days, we’ll look to quiet things down with the loss of daytime heating by the evening hours, but something to keep checking back on throughout the day for lingering activity. Temperature-wise, thermometers start off in the mid 70s Sunday morning and look to climb into the upper 80s by the afternoon if you don’t get touched by the rain ahead of time.

The rain chances continue into the beginning of the upcoming week as an area of low pressure sends disturbances our direction. While some dry spots look to be found, scattered rain and storms will be possible over the next several days. As upper level high pressure tries to move into the area, we’ll try to quiet things down heading into next weekend. The plus side of all of this rain-cooled air and added cloud cover? Daytime highs look to sit below average, in the upper 80s through the majority of next week!
