Tuesday will be the first of a number of days in the 80s. Overall, the week will be mixed with a both some sun and clouds with generally mostly sunny conditions. Highs will range from 82° to 87° through the rest of the week. This is the first 5-day stretch of 80s we have seen since early September.

One consequence of the long dry stretch, it's a big increase in pollen/allergen levels. Without any significant chance for rain this week, high pressure will trap the particulates and lead to high levels. Scattered rain and storms will be possible Saturday and, more likely, on Sunday.

We do have to watch the river level this week as water continues to rise in result of last week's storms. The crest isn't expected until Thursday morning near 49'. That is still below flood stage, but that doesn't mean we won't see some areas with flooding.
