We have a 30 percent of showers and thunderstorms today, mainly after 3 p.m. Some of those storms, like the ones yesterday, could produce locally heavy rain, frequent lightning, damaging winds and hail more than an inch across. Rainfall totals will be light, except in thunderstorms.

You may run into some patchy fog this morning, but it will become partly sunny, with a high of 88. Light west wind.

Showers and storms may continue tonight through the early morning hours, still a 30 percent chance. It will be mostly cloudy and 69.

Thursday will have a greater chance of showers and thunderstorms at 60 percent. Most will be after 5 p.m. It will be partly sunny and 88 again. Thursday night also has a 60 percent chance of rain. It will be mostly cloudy and 69.

Friday, too, has a 60 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms after 2 p.m. It will be mostly cloudy and 76 with light southeast wind. Same chance of rain continues Friday night, with mostly cloudy skies and a low of 68.

Saturday will have a 50 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms, starting as early as 9 a.m. It will be mostly cloudy and 85. Showers and storms are likely Saturday night, too, which will be mostly cloudy and 69.

Not much change for Sunday, but the chance of showers and thunderstorms is 40 percent, with thunderstorms more likely in the afternoon. It will be partly sunny and 87. More of the same Sunday night, with a low of 70.

Monday, it’s back to a 60 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms, with partly sunny skies and a high of 88. Same chance of rain Monday night, with a low of 69.

We might get a little break Tuesday, when it should be mostly sunny and 86.
