Continued chance for rain; Increased chance for warmer, more humid weather


Not much rain across the viewing area Tuesday

but spotty/scattered showers and a thunderstorm will remain in the forecast for the remainder of the evening.

Otherwise, cloudy skies tonight.  We won’t drop as much, thanks in part to the cloud cover, winds shifting more southerly, and higher low-level moisture.  Dew points are around 60° today.  Lows will drop off to the upper 50°s to lower 60°s Wednesday morning.

Another mainly cloudy day is expected for Wednesday.  Once again, we’ll have another chance for scattered showers and thunderstorms throughout the day, but especially towards the afternoon and evening.

Dma Tomorrow High

Temperatures will be higher with highs in the lower to middle 70°s.  Winds will begin to increase out of the south, gusting to 20 mph at times.
