Another hot and humid afternoon to round out the weekend. In fact, Melbourne has already tied its record of 90 degrees and may even break the record for the second day in a row before our Sunday is over. Temperatures will remain in the upper 80s to around 90 degrees with heat index numbers in the low 90s for everyone. Strong winds today out of the southwest will keep the east coast sea breeze pinned close to coastline. There may be a few showers that pop up along this sea breeze. Our may concern, however, is the west coast sea breeze. Showers and storms will be possible as it tracks east. Once the two sea breeze boundaries collide, strong storms will be possible. The main threats include high wind, heavy rain, and frequent lightning. There may be a few stronger storms that hold damaging wind gusts and hail.
Most of the storms will fade around sunset, but a few showers may linger into early tonight. Mostly cloudy skies will follow through the overnight hours with lows in the upper 60s to low 70s. Winds will not drop as much as previous nights, so the threat for fog will be lower.
Monday is also going to hold a good chance for afternoon showers and storms. Volusia, Flagler, and Marion counties are in a slight risk for severe weather, which is a little higher than Sunday. Damaging wind is the main concern, along with the potential for flooding and frequent lightning. Winds will be stronger throughout the day, out of the southwest. While the rain will hold temperatures back a few degrees from the weekend, it will still be warm and humid with highs in the middle to upper 80s.
A front will drop south on Tuesday. There may still be a few showers and storms throughout the day with no big push of dry air following the front. The chances, however, will be much lower. Lower rain chances will continue for the rest of the week with highs staying closer to average in the middle 80s.
