The kids should be fine for the bus stop Monday morning, just thickening clouds with haze & temperatures in the mid 60s to 70 & muggy.

We are fair game for waves of scattered showers & storms mid to late morning & onward through the afternoon & evening to Monday night.

The rainfall will be off & on with breaks for some sun at times all day.  An isolated severe storm or two cannot be ruled out at any point mid to late morning to tomorrow evening.  Wind, hail, tornado risk is all isolated.  Some locally-heavy rainfall of +1.75" in a short period of time is possible, given dew points as high as 75.

Coverage should peak around 75-80%.

It looks muggy with a brisk southeast wind sustained at 10-15 mph with gusts to 24 mph & highs in the upper 70s to lower 80s.

Thursday will feature highs of 75-80 with a nice breeze from the northwest & scattered showers/t'showers around with coverage peaking at 55%.

Wednesday-Thursday look great, but the skies will be smoky as a thick plume of western wildfire smoke moves through.  This may actually shave a couple of degrees off our high temperature & raise our low temperature a bit.  The smoke may act as a veil of clouds that dims the sun some.

So, 70s for high Wednesday, 70s to 80 Thursday & overnight lows in the 50s.  Wednesday should feature quite a bit of cumulus cloudiness, but Thursday looks mostly sunny with only a few small cumulus clouds.

High & mid clouds should increase from northwest to southeast Friday north of a warm front.  This, with the smoke, will keep us in the upper 70s to lower 80s.
