Still watching as scattered rain continues to move through the area early on this morning. Be sure to grab the umbrella, especially if commuting by foot, as showers are expected to be periodic. The chance for scattered showers and thunderstorms lingers through the afternoon today, with pockets of heavier rain still possible. Highs will be a bit warmer than yesterday rising near 79. Good news though, heading towards late this afternoon partial clearing will occur. More sunshine will be expected just as the sun starts to set early this evening, with drier conditions building up through the overnight period. Lows will still stay in the 60s locally across the area.
