Showers may slow you down Monday morning


It has been a pretty comfortable Sunday, all things considered. We saw a mix of the clouds and sun, plus some of the warmest readings we’ve had in a few days. That said, we only popped up into the low 70s! Great day to open up the windows.

The connection between Summer and Winter

I’ll cut right to the chase: there is a chance for strong to severe thunderstorms in the area Tuesday afternoon into Tuesday night. This you probably already know by now. However, this does not mean it’s a “sure thing” nor that everyone will see thunderstorms at all.
