Weather: Rainy days remain ☔

This weekend was gorgeous -- or at least Saturday was. Sunday was OK, but there were spotty rainshowers that kept us in check outside. The sun was struggling to make an appearance, but it was still a comfortable day. 🌥️

We're starting to see summer temperatures, but the spring-like rainy days remain. There may be some rain in the morning on Monday, but the afternoon temps will be in the middle 70s, the Local 4Casters say.

We'll stay on top of all the traffic and construction updates this week. We feel your pain!
