There's a "Chance" of rain tonight through 6 am. Accumulations of .02
are in the forecast. This is not going to be a Drought Buster.

From our friends at the National Weather Service:

Today: Partly sunny, with a high near 52. East southeast wind around 11 mph.

Tonight: A 30 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms. Increasing
clouds, with a low around 43. East northeast wind between 9 and 16
mph, with gusts as high as 23 mph.

Tuesday: A slight chance of showers. Cloudy, then gradually becoming
mostly sunny, with a high near 61. North wind around 17 mph, with
gusts as high as 24 mph. Chance of precipitation is 20%.

Now, given that the high today is in the low 50s, the chances of
severe weather are low. That's not to say a stray thunderstorm won't
have lightning. If the streets are wet, you can still lose control of
your car.

Firefighters, please know that there is a wind shift associated with
this event that will occur in the overnight hours, around 9 p.m.
tonight. Winds are forecast to increase, gusting to 20, and winds
continue from the north Tuesday in the teens.

This is the SW Area Conference week. Jerry Gibson and I will be
attending. If you need anything, please free free to call our cells.

BE safe.
