Good soaking rain showers watered the grass nicely this morning, and it looks as if we may see sunshine come out for the afternoon. Temperatures will rise 5 to 10 degrees above the average into the 70s, with most of the 80s staying to the south. A 60 or two may stick back towards the mountains and areas that see clouds more often than not during the day.
The atmosphere will become slightly unstable as we head into the afternoon hours with the sun, leading to a pop-up shower or storm.
