After being absolutely spoiled in terms of weather and temperatures, rain finally creeps its way back into the forecast.
A cold front will slide across the area, helping to trigger some scattered to widespread showers and maybe a few rumbles of thunder as we head into this afternoon.

Today: Mostly cloudy with scattered showers and a few rumbles of thunder. Highs near 81°F. Overnight, showers linger with lows near 65°F.

Wednesday: Partly sunny with and isolated shower or thunderstorm. Highs near 84°F. Overnight, mostly cloudy with lows near 65°F,

After today, the rain gear likely won’t be entirely necessary as we start to dry back out. However, with the isolated shower chances it wouldn’t hurt to pack the umbrella or rain jacket just in case…
