Sunday night will be partly cloudy in the evening. Deep tropical moisture will move into the area and fuel isolated to scattered showers and storms each day. West wind 7 to 14 miles per hour. High pressure finally settles into place Tuesday night, leaving us drier and sunnier come Wednesday.

The chance of rain increases Wednesday and we could have a slight chance of thunderstorms in the afternoon.

Chances of showers continue through the forecast, but this time it'll be a different beast.

Although below normal, Sundays high temperatures are expected to reach the mid 60s. South wind 5 to 10 miles per hour. We'll have plenty of sunshine to end the work week, and high temperatures in the mid-70s.
