After a band of severe storms swept across the area late in the week, drier weather is in store for Saturday, but will return early in the workweek.

"It will pretty much dry out by Saturday morning," Meteorologist Alyson Hoegg said. "It will be pretty nice with highs in the upper 60s and low 70s, which is right around average for this time of year."

By Sunday, cooler air will shift into the area dropping temperatures down into the low 60s.

Rain will follow as a storm system moves in, bringing a wet start to the workweek for Monday commuters.

"It will be a pretty soggy end of the week and start of the workweek," Hoegg said.

On Monday, there will be the potential for strong thunderstorms to develop, she said.

"It will basically be raining non-stop Sunday through Monday," she said. "It looks like a very wet pattern for them right now."

Drier, milder weather is in store Tuesday with a mix of clouds and sunshine.
