Brad's forecast | Severe storms possible Monday afternoon Few Storm Chances For Monday

The weekend will be hot and humid. High near 90. At night, partly cloudy with a 30 percent chance of rain.

The heat is on again by week's end when highs soar back into the mid and upper 90s once again along with gusty southerly winds and higher humidity but not too many rain/storm chances. In fact our in house computer model doesn't even have rain at all tonight while other computer models keep at least a chance.

Temps today will be well below average along the coast this afternoon with the numbers holding in the low to mid 60s.

Increasing clouds along with increasing temperatures will also come increasing chances for rain and thunderstorms this afternoon, evening and overnight. Between about 3-8pm Wednesday we'll watch a cold front swinging through the area that could trigger strong and severe thunderstorms.

Another person commented that while " Prince George might be our future King", Savannah "decides she's the boss on the balcony". However, Peter and Autumn Phillips' daughter isn't the first royal child to pull that very move on the palace balcony.

A few more clouds roll in for tonight, but no rain is expected.

Thursday: Partly sunny with a 40 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms. Highs will reach in the upper 80s to near 90s with nights near 70 most of next week.

Friday-Sunday brings lows back in the 70s and highs in the 90s with plenty of sunshine.

Tomorrow night: By evening the bulk of the shower activity should be moving off to the south, although we could still see a lingering shower into the overnight.
