A slow moving upper level low pressure was just centered to our

pockets of more steady rainfall will be likely for today into
tonight. Total rainfall expected with this system still remain
between a half inch to one inch with a few locations possibly

The upper level low will slowly exit the region on Monday but
clouds and lingering showers will remain across the eastern half
of the area through at least Monday morning or midday. Clouds will
not start clearing from west to east until Monday night. Tuesday
will be a better day and milder with some sun and clouds and highs
in the upper 60s. Another weak cold front will move through
Tuesday night into Wednesday with a few showers. The overall
weather pattern for the rest of the week will be in a northwest

and seasonable cool temperatures. Temperatures may run just a tad
below average for this time of year.
