Monday Morning: Partly cloudy & very warm; Heavy rain & strong storms Tuesday-Wednesday

Weather

Today & Tonight: Mostly sunny to partly cloudy. Highs will top out in the low and mid 80s. We stay rain-free today. A shower may develop near the coast overnight, but most will stay dry. Low near 61°F.

Tuesday: A stalled boundary and a passing disturbance will lead to numerous showers and storms across the area. Rain coverage for now looks to be around 70-80%. Heavy rain could lead to some isolated flash flooding issues. Rain totals on Tuesday look to be 1-2″ with locally higher amounts. There is Marginal Risk (threat level 1 of 5) for severe weather. Main concern will be damaging wind and hail. Also, there’s a Marginal Risk (1 of 4) for flooding. Most of the rain will come to an end at night. High near 79°F. Overnight temperature near 64°F.

Wednesday: More showers and storms are expected as a cold front finally passes through the area. Best chance for rain looks to be during the morning and early afternoon, but rain may be around during the late afternoon, too. A few strong or even severe storms will be possible. Isolated flash flooding will be possible. Rain totals through Thursday morning may be around 2-4″ with locally higher amounts. Rain chance is around 70%. High near 76°F. Overnight temperature near 57°F.

Thursday: Forecast confidence is quite low beyond Wednesday. As of now, it looks like the front will be to our south and it may stall out, which will lead to some more rain chances, but chances will be much lower. Highs in the mid 70s. Rain chance is around 30-40%.

Friday & Weekend: Another passing disturbance may lead to more rain Friday and Saturday. For now, rain chances look to be around 40%. Mostly dry on Sunday. Currently, only a 20% chance for rain. Highs will be in the low and mid 70s. Morning temperatures in the 50s.
