.DISCUSSION...
Mostly cloudy conditions will continue for the next few days with
chances for light rain. Monday and Tuesday will have some sun,
but the clouds will return again on Wednesday along with a chance
of some late showers later in the week. Overall not expecting much
for accumulation but rather just a prolonged period of cloudy
and damp conditions.
