Scattered showers and storms for Sunday
A front will cross the region during the afternoon on Sunday, bringing showers and some isolated thunderstorms with it. Most of the state is in a general thunderstorm risk, with southwestern regions in the marginal risk (level 1 out of 5). Cloud cover during the daytime may limit the thunderstorm threat throughout the state, however, temperatures and dewpoints in the southwest regions may be sufficient to feed a few stronger thunderstorms. The largest threat with the storms, especially the ones that pop up in the southwest, will be hail and gusty winds.
Temperatures on Sunday will range from mid 70s up north to 80s down south. It will remain fairly dry throughout the state with the exception of southwestern regions that could see a few isolated mid 60s for dew points. Winds will be a little all over the place as the front moves through. Northern regions of the state will generally see a NW/N wind at around 4-7 mph. Southern/central regions will generally see a southerly wind at around 5-9 mph but increasing as you head towards the coast.
Overnight, temperatures will range from the low 50s north to upper 50s south. Northwestern regions could even drop down into the upper 40s. Showers will linger into the overnight hours and an isolated thunderstorm cannot be ruled out. Fog is likely overnight, especially along the coast and in areas that it rained.
Temperatures increasing throughout the week
Temperatures will gradually increase throughout the week, reaching the upper 80s by Friday. Humidity will also return midweek and persist through the end of the week. Expect dew points in the upper 60s and low 70s throughout the south and decreasing into the low 60s as you move north.
Next chance for rain on Wednesday
A low pressure system will approach the region on Wednesday. This low pressure system will feature a warm front that will swing through the state on Wednesday, then a cold front on Thursday. Showers and thunderstorms will be likely on Wednesday, transitioning to mostly showers on Thursday.
