bring a chance of showers or a thunderstorm late Thursday and
Friday, with temperatures remaining warm. Daily highs and lows
Fri thru Sun will run up to 15 degrees above normal. Isolated
sea breeze convection possible Sunday, however a better shot
of convection will occur late Mon due to a cold frontal
passage. Weak high pressure will take hold during the middle of next
week.
