It has been a cloudy, cool, and dreary day across the area as clouds and intermittent showers have been present. We will keep the clouds with us overnight and into our Tuesday, but should be able to poke a few holes in the clouds through the afternoon hours tomorrow. Rain showers will be present across the area, with the best chance the further west you head.
Rain showers will become less scattered on Wednesday through Friday as we dry out a bit as high pressure tries to build in above the surface. Most of the rain chances will be confined to near the Mississippi River, but a shower or two could make it in our direction each day. Highs should warm back into the mid 80s to close out the week.
Our next, big rain maker looks to arrive late Saturday through our Sunday. For now, it is still way to early to determine what all will happen with this system, but it does look like this cold front will tap into tropical moisture which means heavy rainfall. There is also the potential for thunderstorms, but too early to say if they will be severe or not. We will be keeping a close eye on the weekend.
