    Tonight, the rain will come to an end. Particularly after midnight. There will be a few showers before then that could bring heavy rain. By first thing Monday morning, there should not be any more rain around us. Rain chances are up to 60% tonight, but will fall after midnight. Temperatures will also be cooler. Some places may see the lower 50s! That would be much closer to where we should be this time of the year.
