We had a stellar weekend of weather, but prepare for a more unsettled week ahead.

Before we get there, we do have an Air Quality Alert our for the Metro due to poor air quality. Ozone levels are elevated this afternoon and could impact some who are sensitive to that. That Alert lasts until midnight.

Humidity will begin to tick up overnight and into Monday and clouds will move in as well. Temperatures overnight will only fall into the low to mid 60s. Wind should stay from the south around 5 mph.

The next chance at rain will return tomorrow afternoon with as we see more humidity move in. It will be dry for a majority of the daytime hours tomorrow so you will be able to be productive much of the day. There will be a warm front that lifts through which may produce a few isolated showers, but it mainly will be partly cloudy skies.

We will be in the warm sector of an incoming storm system, which means it will be higher humidity with temperatures in the mid to upper 80s. Wind will be gusty with an occasional gust up to 20 mph. Storms will move in ahead of a warm front later in the day, coming through by 6 to 7 p.m. However, the strongest storms and heaviest rain will likely be overnight into Tuesday.

The Storm Prediction Center does include areas along and west of I-71/I-75 in a Marginal Risk (level 1 of 5) for strong Storms Monday evening. Damaging winds and large hail the primary threats. While we can’t rule out tornadoes, the threat for that looks low as well.

Another chance for showers will linger into Tuesday, but they will be light and scattered. However, clouds will linger through much of the day. It will be a touch cooler with the upper 70s and low 80s, but humidity remains high. That won’t go away until the end of the week with cooler temperatures for Thursday through Sunday.
