From chief meteorologist Tony Petrarca..
Gusty southwest winds (25-30mph) will keep temperatures mild this evening, in the mid 60s, then cooling after midnight through dawn Tuesday as a cold front sweeps offshore. This cold front will pass through between roughly 12AM this evening to 2AM overnight. It’s at this time that a “quick strong” thunderstorm will move through. Not all locations will get a thunderstorm around midnight…the highest chances appears to be closer to the south coast and just offshore. Some storms may produce isolated tree limb damage near the coast. If these thunderstorms form a bit further south, then our area will miss them completely. We will continue to monitor the radar closely around midnight. Wind gusts after midnight until 6AM Tuesday will gust 40-45 mph at times
Lighter showers, this evening, then chance of thunderstorm around midnight..
The sun is back by early Tuesday morning along with much lower humidity
Mostly sunny breezy, seasonably cool weather Tuesday afternoon, highs 55-60
