The leftovers of Isaac will still have a minor influence on our weather Tuesday. Expect a cloudy start with some areas of fog, especially across the NW. Temps will start out in the upper 60s and low 70s.
By the mid-morning, expect sun and clouds with temps rising into the 70s. We should stay mainly dry through the morning hours. Again, though, in the afternoon, our chances for showers and storms will develop. We should see less coverage and less duration that what we saw on Monday.
The good news is the moisture from Isaac will slowly move out tonight, and we'll see clearing skies with an early leftover shower chance. By Wednesday, a brief lull in the rain is expected with mainly sunny skies and highs in the low 80s.
A strong cold front arrives late Wednesday into Thursday, bringing in rain chances overnight Wednesday and into Thursday morning. Highs will cool into the 70s Thursday with a drying afternoon. More sun is expected for Friday with highs in the middle 70s.
