Then for Sunday, expect another mostly cloudy and warm day with patchy early morning fog. Highs on Sunday will be in the low 80s under mostly cloudy skies. There will be a slightly better chance of a few light scattered showers, at 30%.

A cold front should move into our area Monday into Tuesday, yielding our best chance of rain this week, 60%-70% both Monday and Tuesday. We could see a good soaker, at one to two inches of rain in the forecast. No severe weather is anticipated for that period at this time.

Behind this frontal system, we look to cool temperatures back down to where they should be this time of year, in the 60s.

There are a few more small rain chances for Wednesday and Thursday, then the end of the ten day forecast looks nice and dry.
