Staying warm and humid, becoming increasingly unsettled this week

High pressure aloft centered over the midwest will keep a lid on any widespread thunderstorms this afternoon/evening, but we could see a few more a hit-or-miss pop-up showers and storms here & there through sundown.

Any storms this afternoon could produce locally heavy rain, small, hail, and gusts over 30 or 40MPH, but no severe weather or major flooding issues are expected. We'll otherwise be partly cloudy, warm, and muggy again overnight with lows in the 60s.

Monday looks warm & muggy, partly sunny, and a little unsettled with scattered showers and thunderstorms during the afternoon. Highs tomorrow should be again in the 80s, and like today, rain should fade after sunset tomorrow evening. Low temps will remain mild, in the 60s. The week ahead looks to bring typical warm & humid Summertime weather, with the chance of showers/storms pretty much every day, especially during the afternoons and evenings.

Some days will have higher rain chances/wider-spread showers/storms than other however, depending on the system affecting us. Into early week (Mon-Tue), a stalled out, weak frontal boundary will keep the chance of showers and storms around. Later in the week and toward the weekend, an area of low pressure riding along the SE coastline (which has a low chance of tropical development right now) combined with a cold front heading in from the west, could bring us wider-spread coverage of and heavier rounds of rain/t-storms.
