Overnight we will continue to see clouds move through with spotty showers, and maybe a couple storms. Lows will drop down in the low to mid 60's.
Tomorrow is going to be another rainy day, especially the first half. Our cold front is going to be in the process of clearing out through the late morning and early afternoon so the rain chances will be going with it.

Most spots across the area will be seeing rainfall totals near 1". Nothing severe is expected tomorrow, and after the rain we will be clearing out Sunday and seeing the sunshine and warm conditions through the beginning of next week.
