Fewer but Stronger Thunderstorms Today

Not as much rain today–only a 20% chance.  In fact, there’ll be fewer showers and thunderstorms throughout the week, but the thunderstorms that do manage to develop today could be strong ones, with gusty winds and small hail possible.  Most of us will spend most of the day under mostly cloudy skies.  High 90.

Any thunderstorms taper quickly after sunset.  Low tonight 74.

Our rain chances hover in the 20-30% range all week–mostly scattered thunderstorms in the afternoon and early evening. Highs stay in the low 90s with lows in the mid 70s.

Yellow and purple flags are flying at area beaches.  Yellow means a moderate risk of rip currents; purple means the possibility of dangerous marine life like jellyfish.

The tropics remain quiet.
