The area can expect to see heavy rain Sunday, with the highest chances of rain in the evening. The day could be windy and rain will continue into the night. The NWS said that with recent snow melt, the ground is already wet, which results in quick runoff of rain.

After that warm day, Sunday night temperatures will return to cold, with lows around 33 degrees.

Monday will be cool and windy, with clouds falling throughout the day. Winds will rise in the afternoon, with some gusts as high as 25 mph.
