High pressure continues along with late afternoon storms this week

Daytime heating and sea breeze convection to produce storms


An isolated shower or storm is not out of the picture for the rest of the evening into the overnight hours, but the main threat for thunderstorms is over as most of the activity is now off shore. Overnight lows will reach the mid-to-upper 70s under mostly cloudy skies.

Temperatures are well above seasonal norms, so we may reach a record high-low temperature early Monday morning and subsequently daytime highs will be well-above average as temperatures top out in the lower 90s. Heat indices will easily reach 100° through the first part of the week.

High pressure will give us rather pleasant conditions for the week; however, daytime heating and sea breeze convection storms will develop during the late afternoon and evening hours each day. Expect scattered storms to develop between Highway 301 and I-95 most days.  A moderate risk for rip currents continues through tomorrow.
