It is going to be a scattered shower type of day around here with peeks of sunshine. The thing is, we do not want the sunshine today-that will only increase instability which could create some larger thunderstorms later on this afternoon. Therefore, mostly cloudy today with peeks of sunshine here and there. We will also see sprinkles here and there through the day. Winds will pick up this afternoon and a better chance of rain showers and thunderstorms come our way as a frontal system approaches the area. Skies will clear after midnight setting us up for a less humid, sunny and dry Mother's Day. Temperatures tomorrow should hold in the lower to mid 80s. However, by Monday and Tuesday we heat on up! Temperatures on Monday and Tuesday with partly cloudy skies will top out near 90 degrees with rain chances returning Tuesday night. Rain chances continue through Wednesday, Thursday and Friday morning as a cold front crosses through the region.
