Tracking several storm chances for the work week….Don’t put away your umbrella just yet! We’re tracking several chances for thunderstorms as we go through the week. On Monday, expect partly sunny skies across the area. A couple of isolated showers are possible during the day. But by late Monday evening, a few scattered showers and storms are possible as a warm front moves in from the south. High temperatures will rise into the upper 70s and lower 80s. By Tuesday and Wednesday, we’ll see a good deal of clouds, along with a few afternoon and evening showers and thunderstorms as a front nearly stalls over the area. Highs will likely be in the mid and upper 70s along the coast and in the 80s inland. A few late day storms are possible Thursday, then more storms are in the forecast for Friday. Right now, no day looks like a complete washout, but any storms that develop could produce heavy rain, gusty winds and lightning.  High temperatures are expected in the 70s by the end of the week into next weekend.

Tonight: Partly to Mostly Cloudy. Low temperatures in the mid 50s. Winds: SE 5-10 mph.

Monday: Partly Sunny. Slight Chance of Showers (20%). Storms Possible Late. High temperatures in the upper 70s and lower 80s. Winds: S/SW 5-10 mph.

Tuesday: Partly to Mostly Cloudy. Chance of Storms (30%). High temperatures in the mid and upper 70s. Winds: E 5-10 mph.
