Tropical rainbands will continue to impact the area over the next few days. Coverage and intensity probably won't get as bad as it was on Monday. Light morning showers are impacting the area Tuesday morning. Activity will become more widespread and heavier as we move into late morning and early afternoon.

Scattered activity will continue into the evening drive. Most can expect around half an inch of rain Tuesday. The daytime high will reach the mid to upper 80°s. Tropical moisture continues into Wednesday with a few morning showers and better rain chances moving into the early afternoon. A quarter to half an inch of rain is anticipated Wednesday.

By Thursday, the tropical moisture will start to move away from the area. This will lead to a decrease in rain chances for the rest of the work week. High pressure will build by next weekend, bringing only slight rain chances to the forecast. Highs will return to the 90°s for the end of the week, with feels like temperatures in the triple digits for the upcoming weekend.
