    More rain again MondayMore rain again Monday

    Periods of off and on rain with some thunderstorms will continue through Tuesday as more upper level disturbances cross our area.  It is important to note that it will not rain all day, and there may be long periods with no rain at all.  The next upper level disturbance is expected to cross over our area late Sunday into Monday and that means more rain and possibly some thunderstorms too.  It is expected to be warm with lows in the 60s and highs in the 70s.
