Clouds will be in abundance today with highs reaching into the middle to lower 80s. Winds will remain out of the southwest today around 5 mph. Any storm we see today could produce heavy rain, lightning, and gusty winds. More stormy weather is possible tonight. Clouds will be sticking around, and lows will fall into the lower 70s. Winds will be out of the south around 5 mph.
