First Warning Forecast: Sunshine to start the day, chance of storms by the afternoon and evening
We’ll be cranking up the heat today. Winds will be out of the southwest. This will pump in warmer and more humid air. Temperatures will soar to the upper 80s to near 90. A cold front will approach the area during the afternoon. This will give us a chance of showers and storms. The Storm Prediction Center has most of the area in a level 1 for severe storms, which means an isolated severe storm is possible. The biggest threat will be gusty winds. We will continue to keep an eye on it.
Refreshing start to the work week. High pressure will build in behind the cold front. The air will be much drier, making it feel much more comfortable. Expect highs in the mid and upper 70s under mostly sunny skies.
Tuesday is looking dry as well. Temperatures will warm to near 80.
Temperatures will start to warm to the mid and upper 80s for the rest of the week. We will also be unsettled with chances of storms during the afternoon.

This system is expected to move slowly west-northwestward toward the coast of Mexico, and it could become a tropical cyclone before it moves inland early next week.
