High pressure will be moving off the coast today and a southwest flow of warmer air will move into our area. We will have mostly sunny skies again and the humidity will still be on the low side with dew points in the upper 50s.
A stormy day is likely on Tuesday as a low pressure moves along a stationary front in our area. Heavy rain is likely especially in the afternoon and evening along with the possibility of strong to severe thunderstorms. Rainfall amounts of 2 or more inches are also possible.
The front will move just to our south and so we will still have a chance of showers Wednesday and Thursday.
