SUNDAY NIGHT

Storm chances have mostly dropped off leaving our area mostly quiet for the rest of the night. Skies will gradually clear setting us up for another muggy night with areas of fog, especially where rain fell Sunday. Lows drop into the upper 60s to low 70s.

Lows fall to near 70 with dense fog possible in areas that saw rain Sunday.

THIS WEEK

The typical summertime pattern of hot, humid air will persist as we go through the week. Afternoon highs reach the upper 80s to low 90s. There will be just enough instability around to generate a few afternoon thunderstorms each day. A few of the storms could be on the stronger side each afternoon.

With an area of high pressure parked to our east offshore, the best chance of rain will likely be in the mountains early in the week. Better area-wide storm chances arrive later in the week as frontal boundary washes out over our area into the weekend.

Highs in the 80s and 90s with daily afternoon storm chances.
