Weather Now: Nice Monday, Showers and Thunderstorms Tuesday

Weather

It will be a nice day today (Victory Day) with mostly to partly sunny skies and highs in the mid 80s inland. At the beach highs will be in the upper 70s to around 80. There will probably be some gusts around 25 mph during the afternoon at the beach. There will also be a moderate risk of rip currents.

It will be mostly rain-free overnight, but a few showers are possible. It you are looking to view the Perseid Meteor Shower (which peaks tonight into dawn Tuesday), there may be some views but clouds could obscure the view during portions of the night.

A few showers are possible for the Tuesday morning, although much of the morning may be rain-free.

By the afternoon, the chance of showers and thunderstorms increases. Some downpours could be quite heavy and there will be a potential of localized street flooding.

Some showers may still be around first thing Wednesday morning, but we should dry out through the day.

So what about the humidity? Today is still fairly comfortable, but humidity increases tonight into Tuesday. After a muggy Tuesday, humidity will drop a bit Wednesday into Thursday.
