Mild and muggy conditions will continue overnight. Lows will be in the 60s and lower 70s with areas of patchy fog possible.

TUESDAY

Hot and muggy weather continues with a typical summer pattern in play. We’ll see more clouds develop during the prime heating of the day. Our highs climb into the upper 80s and lower 90s with a few afternoon thunderstorms possible. A couple of the storms could be on the stronger side. The Storm Prediction Center has placed the western part of our area under a Marginal Risk of severe storms this afternoon. The main threat from any storm would be heavy rainfall from slow moving thunderstorms and also the potential for some strong damaging wind gusts.

THE REST OF THE WEEK

The typical summertime pattern of hot, humid air will persist as we go through the rest of 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.

More of the same with hot and humid conditions. We'll also keep a chance of a few storms around.
