But, also, into the overnight hours tonight. Widespread rain and maybe a few thunderstorms. Locally heavy downpours will cause localize flooding. Due to clouds and showers, the high temperature may struggle to reach 81. Low tonight 71.
Here’s the set-up. Everything points to RAIN. Low pressure moving northeast from Louisiana and Mississippi, at the surface, combined with the fact that we’re on the wet side of an upper level low on the Gulf coast.

More scattered storms Monday as a Nice “Cool” front slips through the state. NICE AIR behind the front on Tuesday. Lower humidity. I think MOST of next week will be great. Sunshine.
