(KFVS) -

Good morning, it is Monday, April 23.

First Alert Forecast

The rain will continue throughout the early morning and will start to weaken and become more scattered, later in the morning.

Lisa Michaels says there will be strong winds with the rain. The winds will slow down in the hours after daybreak.

The clouds will break up this afternoon and that raises the potential for thunderstorms this afternoon and this evening. The storms aren’t expected to be severe.

The heavy rain will clear out tonight. We could still see isolated showers for the next few days, but it won’t be the widespread rain we have seen. High temperatures will linger in the 60s.

We’ll start to see a gradual warming trend starting Thursday and that will peak with a great weekend with dry skies and high temps in the 70s.
