Tracking showers and storms....As we move through our Sunday night, expect scattered showers and a possible thunderstorm as a frontal system approaches the viewing area. Some of the rain could be heavy at times overnight. By Monday morning, many of us will have rain for the commute. Again, a few isolated thunderstorms are possible. Otherwise, expect mostly cloudy skies to become partly cloudy by late morning. By afternoon, most of the area will break out in sunshine. High temperatures will soar into the low to mid 80s. But don't get used to the dry weather. A cold front will slide in, colliding with the warm, humid air, creating the potential of strong to severe thunderstorms Monday evening. Damaging winds and large hail will be the main threats. By Tuesday, the cold front will be offshore, giving way to a mix of sun and clouds. Highs will be in the lower 70s. Many of us will be mid 70s by Wednesday under partly sunny skies.

Tonight: Mostly Cloudy. Rain Likely (90%). Overnight temperatures in the 60s. Winds: SE 10-20 mph.

Monday: Mostly Cloudy. AM Scattered Showers and Storms (50%). Then, mostly sunny by afternoon. More storms move in by evening. Some storms could be strong to severe. High temperatures in the low to mid 80s. Winds: S 10-15 mph.

Tuesday: Sun and Clouds. High temperatures in the lower 70s. Winds: W 10-15 mph.
