“Some of us won’t see any rain at all. Some of us will see rain. A few of us may see lightning. And only a few if any locations will actually see severe damaging weather,” said WLOX First Alert Meteorologist Wesley Williams.

Conditions improve after midnight tonight when the rain chances come to an end for us.

And then the weather pattern turns drier, cooler, and breezy for Tuesday with highs only around 70 degrees.

The rest of this week looks dry and nice. Our next rain chance does not arrive until perhaps this weekend.
