Police say just after 3:15 a.m, a man, described as white, wearing white shoes, baggy grey sweatpants, a navy blue or black hooded sweatshirt, with medical bandages covering his entire face and right hand, walked into the pharmacy.  The clerk says the man approached him at the front cash register, showed a gun and demanded money.

Some showers are expected in your Monday forecast, but will mostly be in the northern end of the valley and mountains. Scattered mountain showers linger Tuesday, then dry and warmer weather takes hold for the middle of the week. Wet weather returns next weekend.
