Today's Forecast

Today's Forecast Image
  • 97°
  • 75°

We are seeing a mixture of sun and clouds today and a few places are looking at some storms. Storms look to be widely scattered across the viewing area. Storms should start to dissipate once the sun goes down. The weekend will bring another round of mostly clear skies and a slight chance of rain like the one we are seeing today. Sunday's rain chance will be lower but isolated storms will still be possible. Rain chances continue into next week.
