Although there's still a chance for showers and thunderstorms today and tonight, a drying trend is headed our way, bringing a break in the rain through the middle of next week.

Along with the drying trend will come much warmer temperatures, with Tuesday and Wednesday expected to bring the hottest temps we've seen since early July.
