isolated shower. otherwise, we will be dry b, partly cloudy skies out there. you can see how the future cast put into motion -- see how some of the presip areas, just isolated pockets of rain stretch into the area here. but to the south, we're going to stay clear. cloud cover will not even be a problem here this afternoon. then we dry out completely. still areas where it is cold. we will be dry and clear for the most part as we go into monday. the next system rainmaker coming in tuesday into enz. that is tuesday at 1:30. have the umbrellas handy. rain showers moving through
