Highs across the southern half of the state should be in the 70s again Monday, before they have the chance to eclipse the 80-degree mark for the first time this year on Tuesday. 

Along with the warmth comes our first chances of thunderstorms Sunday-Tuesday.

  • Monday: Some morning rumbles otherwise a nice day.
