8:30 AM UPDATE - SUNDAY, AUGUST 19TH, 2018
After the few scattered thunderstorms we had across the region on Saturday, we've got lots of sunshine and warmer temperatures in the forecast as we head into the second half of the weekend. An isolated shower or storm can not be ruled out in our Southeastern Counties this afternoon, but most everyone will remain dry. We will keep some clouds into the forecast through the overnight hours, and skies will start off with some sunshine on Monday, but the clouds will increase and the showers and thunderstorms will develop as we head into Monday Afternoon and Evening. Some storms could be strong to possibly severe with gusty winds, heavy rainfall and frequent lightning. This is as a warm front lifts north through the region. Once that does, the cold front will move through by late Tuesday, so showers and thunderstorms will remain in the forecast for Tuesday. Once that front clears the area, cooler changes move in for the middle of the week with sunshine returning and temperatures in the 70's, but then we're back into the 80's by the end of the week with another chance of showers and thunderstorms heading into the first part of next weekend.
SUNDAY: Lots of sunshine. An isolated shower or storm possible in our Southeastern counties. Warm and humid. High: 85°
SUNDAY NIGHT: Partly cloudy skies, increasing clouds overnight towards sunrise. Remaining humid. Low: 67°
MONDAY: Sunshine to start, skies becoming mostly cloudy. Showers and thunderstorms developing in the afternoon and evening. Some storms could be strong to severe. High: 85°
