More showers and storms followed by a little bit of sunshine. Continuing with an unsettled weather pattern.

Mostly dry conditions this evening as a cold front lingers to our south. The front will push back north overnight increasing our chance for some showers. Lows tonight in the lower 70s. Keep those umbrellas handy!

Scattered showers and possible storms as low pressure moves along the frontal system.  Highs in the lower 80s. More showers and storms on Tuesday as pieces of energy ride along the front. Looks drier for Wednesday with a mix of sun and clouds. There is a slight chance for an afternoon shower or storm. High pressure will build in on Thursday with drier conditions and temperatures in the mid 80s.

Showers and storms return for the end of the week as a cold front moves in. Temperatures will begin to trend a bit warmer in the mid and upper 80s.

We are keeping an eye on Tropical Storm Gert. Gert is forecast to stay east of the U.S. The only impact the storm could have on the east coast is the increased risk of rip currents.
