Tuesday, cooler air moves in with readings falling into the 70s with an early shower chance.

High pressure moving east of Ohio will bring a return of near 90º temperatures. South winds take over today, we could see middle 80s by midday! Normal temperatures this time of year top out at 77º, our next chance for a "normal" afternoon will hold off until the middle of the week.
Our next storm system will approach throughout Sunday and Monday, expect to see a few high clouds late Sunday. The clouds will continue to fill into our sky throughout Monday leading to scattered rain late Monday. Anything that pops up late Monday will be scattered rain.
A weekend full of south and southwest winds has primed the air for storms. When the cold front pushes through Tuesday, strong storms will likely spark.
