The weather today will be changing as low pressure departs and high pressure builds in.

For the morning hours, it will be cloudy with occasional showers. None of the rain should be overly heavy and thunderstorms are not expected. Most areas should see at least a little rain this morning.

By the midday hours, most of the rain will be off to the southeast and dry air will start to move in. Skies will turn partly cloudy with puffy fair weather cumulus clouds. 

An isolated brief shower may be spit out of one or two of the larger cumulus clouds, but this should be rare, and most areas will remain dry after the morning rain ends.

Skies will continue to clear tonight, with mostly clear skies expected throughout the nighttime hours.

With low pressure departing, winds will be out of the northwest. Wind speeds could go over 10 mph at times this afternoon with gusts near or just over 25 mph.
