Scattered rain, storms today, drying out late week

It's still tough to guarantee an entirely dry day in this pattern and thunderstorm chances may indeed dot your forecast every day into early next week, but we may be able to sneak in an entirely dry day or two by the weekend if we're lucky. Storms will continue into the plains tonight where additional heavy rains are possible through midnight, especially towards the Nebraska/Kansas border.

Highs on Thursday will reach the upper 80s in the Upstate and lower 80s in the mountains thanks to more sunshine, and only isolated storm chances in the afternoon. With the likelihood of more rain today, there's concern that it could come down at a heavy clip, and if it does over neighborhoods that received heavy rain over the past few days, localized flash flooding could result. The rain will become heavier and more widespread Wednesday and Wednesday night. Wind will continue to crank up from the southeast at 15-20 miles per hour by the afternoon gusting higher than that at points.

PLAINS: High - 80s; Low - 60s.

Across the region, Monday is forecast to be hot - with highs in the low 90s.

Scattered storms will stay in the forecast for Friday and Saturday, but severe threats look much weaker. Some areas could see 3 to 6 inches of rain by mid week. Showers and storms started shortly before noon. But the chance of rain returns Sunday night, prefacing what's expected to be another wet week.
