30% of rain on a cloudy, humid day

I feel like we’re survivors. We withstood the longest and hottest heatwave in California history, and now we have rain in the forecast, as if the inferno was just a dream. We’re looking at a 30% chance of showers on Monday, and if we don’t get any precipitation, we’ll still have grumpy, gray skies keeping us company. Moderate to high humidity will make the day feel muggy, and with highs around 85°F, it’ll be deceptively warm. The rain potential will linger into the evening, and if it doesn’t come, we’ll have a foggy night and lows around 65°F.
