A few showers may linger during the evening and overnight hours as temperatures fall to the upper 60s to middle 70s. Areas of light fog may develop, but should not cause any travel delays.

Heat advisories may be needed Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday as afternoon highs will flirt with 100 degrees with even hotter heat index readings.
