Much of our area still needs rain, and we have several chances during the next week.

Showers and thunderstorms will be scarce to nonexistent Tuesday, but chances go to 30% late Wednesday and overnight. Thursday presents a 40% chance.

They will become isolated Friday, and very scattered over the weekend. By Monday, though, an early look sees up to a 50% chance Monday and Tuesday.

Temperatures, meanwhile, will vary between very warm and hot.

Tuesday and Friday are likely to be the coolest days, with afternoon highs in the upper 80s. Wednesday promises to see the most heat as highs reach the upper 90s.
