Today will once again be a cooler than average day, though we should be able to warm up a little more. The large high up to our northeast will continue to move away, while low pressure emerges from the Rockies and into the Northern Plains. This system will carry a warm front up towards the state Monday afternoon, bringing a rising chance for a few showers and thunderstorms. Staying north of the front through the day it will remain mostly cloudy, limiting our warm up with temperatures remaining in the 60’s. More numerous showers and storms are then expected to slide through at night, with some of the rainfall on the heavier side. Overnight it should start to dry out some, with temperatures not dropping much.
