AWARE: Sunshine and 80s through Tuesday before rain/storms move in later Wednesday

The dry air and hotter weather stick around to start your workweek, with sunshine and mid to upper 80s on Monday and Tuesday. We have a chance for a few areas to flirt with record highs Tuesday, and even a run at 90 degrees for some areas to our south.

Wednesday brings our next chance of showers and a few potentially strong storms from the afternoon through the evening. There's a possible setup for some severe weather, but, right now, it's not set in stone. 

We'll keep you updated through the next 24 hours on whether a First Alert Weather Day is needed. 

Thursday brings more showers and a cooldown, with highs through the Memorial Day weekend back into the upper 70s and near 80 degrees, which is still warmer than average for this time of year.
