After yesterday’s storms, today will be pleasant but a bit cooler. Today’s high is expected to be 62 degrees as clouds make way for sun as the day progresses. Winds will be out of the north at about 5-10 mph. Take a light jacket with you tomorrow should you have any holiday plans.

The entire work week sees a chance of rain and storms every day.
Unfortunately, rain enters the forecast again starting on Monday with a chance of rain about 60%. Rain and thunderstorms seem to be the main mode. At this moment, no mention of severe weather, but we will look more closely come tonight/tomorrow.
