Rain expected this week following brief sunshine

A low pressure system is once again affecting the area, with sunshine during the day expected to be taken over by cloudy skies, rain and thunderstorms.

Monday skies will be partly cloudy with some sunshine expected during early parts of the day. However, due to low barometric pressure that will set in later, chances of local showers and isolated thunderstorms are also expected during later parts of the day.

Strong winds are expected Tuesday along with local showers and thunderstorms. Temperatures will drop noticeably Tuesday and Wednesday while Thursday will pick back up while still remaining below the normal averages for this time of the year.
