We had one system pass late yesterday and overnight, and it's a quiet morning! We have one more system that is moving southward into the area later this morning and afternoon bringing more clouds and a chance of a couple of showers. The air mass isn't as unstable as it was yesterday, but still enough for an isolated thunderstorm. High pressure and warmer thru Wednesday, then a couple of system Thursday through Saturday will bring more showers and thunderstorms, along with a cooler air mass.
