Showers and storms have been slow to form today, but a steady stream of storms are already starting to fire off in the Delta. This area of storms will help enhance convection ahead of it and fire some storms off in our general direction. Expect these storms to continue moving to the southeast and gradually losing intensity and coverage as the sun sets this evening.

Monday afternoon into Monday evening will begin a transition period as a frontal boundary, currently located over the central plains, swings through the twin states ushering in drier air. Ahead of the front expect another round of strong storms, much like we've been seeing these past few days. Rain looks to stay with us overnight Monday as the frontal boundary draws closer and helps kick off a few more showers, but any storms that do form should stay on the very weak side. Tuesday morning as the front clears, expect some morning showers to still persist until about the noon hour.

Behind the front much drier air is expected to filter in. Lately dewpoints have been sitting the 70s and we will trade those for upper 50s and lower 60s. This brief "cool down", will only last through the end of the week, as another ridge looks to begin building in bringing warmer temperatures and increased humidity.

Tonight is the biggest Supermoon of the year, where the moon is the closest to earth it has been in over 20 years. The moon is expected to be 14% bigger and 30% brighter.
