Scattered showers & storms will affect us tonight.  A few isolated to spotty showers/t'showers are possible later today through evening, but the bulk of it will be overnight. 

A random isolated severe storm cannot be ruled out (wind, hail).

Lows tonight will drop to 65-68.

Some scattered rain are possible through tomorrow morning to midday Thursday, mainly in the southern part of the area.

Overcast skies will see some clearing by afternoon from north to south, allowing the clouds to build into a couple isolated showers/t'showers.

A couple may even last into tomorrow night as a shortwave passes.

After highs Thursday of 77-82, lows will drop to 58-62. 

Areas of dense fog are possible early Friday morning.

A hurricane will likely make landfall in Baja California & the remnants of it will be pulled north & northeastward, already enhancing widespread rain & storms from the Rockies to Pennsylvania next week.

Moisture will be pulled into our area along a stalled front, resulting in increasing showers & storms in a tropical airmass next week with locally-heavy rainfall.

Any storms look spotty Sunday to Monday (30%), but Tuesday, coverage goes up to 55%, then 70% Wednesday & 80% Thursday.

An isolated severe storm or two cannot be ruled out Tuesday-Wednesday as numerous showers/storms pulse up, merge with eachother & small lines form.

As unusually cold air spills into the Rockies & Plains (snow in higher-elevations of Wyoming & Colorado), weak remnant hurricane circulation combining with surface low may result in rapid deepening of low pressure from Oklahoma to our area to Michigan.

This could result in severe risk for part of the area & heavy rainfall for the entire viewing area Thursday to Thursday night.

Rain may linger into Friday with strong northwest winds, giving a feel of Fall with highs only at 69-72.

Saturday-Monday (Labor Day weekend) looks good through with partly cloudy to mostly sunny skies, highs in the 70s & lows near 50 to the 50s (few 40s) with nightly fogs.

Potential is there for Sunday-Friday rainfall totals to add up to 2-5.50".
