It was a warm and muggy start to the weekend with temperatures Saturday morning around 70 degrees. We also had some fog to start the day before the sun broke through. Westerly wind off the Gulf continues to usher in a lot of moisture and is also pushing the west coast sea breeze quickly inland. Showers and storms will fire up along this sea breeze, especially as it encounters the east coast sea breeze later in the day. Some storms will have heavy rain and frequent lightning.
Most of the storms will wind down around sunset, although a few showers may linger into early tonight. Mostly cloudy skies are in the forecast through the overnight hours with temperatures falling to around 70 degrees. As winds go light, some patchy fog will be possible as we head toward daybreak on Sunday.
High rain chances stick around for the end of the weekend, mainly during the afternoon and evening hours. We’ll see some sunshine to start the day, but then clouds and rain will move in for the afternoon. Conditions remain extremely warm and humid with highs in the middle to upper 80s , but feeling more like the low 90s.
An approaching front will keep the likely chance of rain on Monday, but will move south Tuesday, dropping rain chances down a bit. The rest of the week looks a little drier with only around a 20 to 30 percent chance each afternoon. Highs will drop back a bit as well, but still remain warm in the mid-80s.
