We had some sprinkles of rain at different spots around the Valley as the evening progressed into night but not a lot to show for the 80 percent chance of precipitation we had going into the day. It’s a 50/50 shot today, with isolated showers, then scattered showers and possibly some thunder after 11 a.m. Or not. Look for a high of 62 degrees with partly sunny skies, except in the event of said scattered showers. Calm winds throughout.

The storm system picks up in its probability of rain Wednesday and Thursday (80 percent each) and the chance of precipitation now extends out into Memorial Day on Monday.

We have a pretty cool story we’re working on today, penned by Sheila Gardner about a topic we think y’all are going to be pretty interested in. That’s what we can say for now. Keep an eye out for that.

That’s a full lid for this morning. Take care out there and have a great day.
