Saturday rain showers and storms linger through the weekend

Here in the Lehigh Valley, the weather service says it will be cool today with temperatures generally in the low 70s.

Our overnight storms would spark thanks to a cold front that will near Arkansas Monday night. At night, mostly cloudy with a 20 percent chance of rain.

Highs Tuesday afternoon are expected to be up close to 80.

Today (Sunday): We could see some early fog and perhaps a passing shower during the morning, but most of us should be mainly dry into midafternoon.

Any stronger storms that develop could drop very heavy rain and have wind gusts as high as 50-60 miles per hour, forecasters said.

The activity will end overnight, with just a few clouds remaining.

At this time, next week is looking quite hot with highs approaching the 90s several days during the week.

Tuesday we'll have a break in the humidity with highs topping out at a comfortable 88 degrees in the afternoon. Highs will reach in the upper 80s to near 90s with nights near 70 most of next week.

Monday we will continue the trend of wet weather with another 50% chance throughout the day. Beyond Wednesday, rain chances become minimal as high temperatures creep back into the 90s for the second half of the week.

Expect rain, and even possible thunderstorms with some downpours for the morning commute Wednesday morning.
