Soaking showers for Monday exit overnight. Clouds remain for Tuesday, with temperatures warming up the mercury into the 80s. The 90s come Wednesday with a chance of showers and storms. A few storms may be strong or severe.
Clouds clear, and sunny skies come back on Thursday. Highs will be in the 80s, with a bit of the humidity remaining. More showers come in as we head into the region Friday and Saturday with a rumble of thunder.
