The weather will be warmer for most of the workweek, with only a 20-30 percent chance of showers and storms on some days.
Tropical storm Bertha is heading towards the U.S., but is expected to take a turn to the north without making landfall. It could create some gusty winds, rip currents and choppy water off the coast of the Carolinas, but will not bring rain inland.
Today it’s just a 30 percent chance of showers and storms, mainly in the afternoon. It will be partly sunny with a high near 85. Tonight, only a 20 percent chance of rain, with a low of 67.
The air quality will be good Monday, with ozone rising to moderate levels on Tuesday and both ozone and particle pollution in the moderate range on Wednesday. The UV index is back up to 10, very high, so you’ll need protection from the sun.
