Monday forecast

Hovering in the low 50s through much of the day as we sit 20+ degrees above average, but breezy south winds and scattered showers won't make it as nice of a day as it may sound. While not a washout, rain showers are likely at times under mostly cloudy skies. - Meteorologist Cody Matz
