Rain returns as heat sticks around

It's time for the rain to return, and it actually means good news in several ways.

First, all the sun and heat has dried us out a bit, not a lot, but enough that the rain will be welcome for the crops in some areas that are drying out quickly.

Second, it should stop us from further drying as the northern counties already have been under a risk for fire a couple out of the past 7 days.

We are expecting a good chunk though, at least half an inch through Tuesday morning.

Storms would have more on top of that amount so the totals will vary widely.

Beyond the rain ending Wednesday morning we cool down a little and the sun returns.
