    Scattered showers and thunderstorms are likely to develop later in the day and linger through Monday, forecasters say.

    Mostly cloudy skies are on tap for today, with precipitation chances increasing during the afternoon and becoming likely at night, according to the National Weather Service. Heavy rain is possible in some storms.

    High temperatures will reach around 80 degrees. A light and variable wind will become southeast around 5 miles per hour during the afternoon.

    By the evening hours, showers and thunderstorms will develop across the area, potentially generating locally heavy rainfall.

    Tomorrow will likely feature mostly cloudy skies with periods of showers and thunderstorms continuing through Monday. Locally heavy rainfall will remain possible. Temperatures will be similar to today, with southeast wind around 10 miles per hour.

    While there’s a low risk of severe weather, a few strong storms are possible.

    The ocean’s in the lower to middle 70s, and there’s a low risk of rip currents, but always swim near a lifeguard.
