SUNDAY WILL BE SEASONAL BUT IT WILL BE COOLER NEAR THE WATER… CLOUDS SHOULD DOMINATE ON MONDAY BUT ANY RAINFALL THAT OCCURS SHOULD BE ON THE LIGHT SIDE

As we progress through spring, it is very common to hear weather forecasters say that it will be cooler near the water during the afternoons. The ocean, bays, rivers, etc. take longer to warm up than the land, so a breeze from the water can still be quite chilly along the coast. Once we get into late spring, the cooler breezes from the water offer relief from the heat. Today (Sunday), our winds will eventually become onshore so the further inland you are, the warmer it will be. Clouds from a system well to our south and west will start to increase later today. The forecast becomes a bit tricky for later tonight and Monday. Computer models indicate that the significant rainfall should stay to our south. However, some light showers, or even a period of rainfall, might occur on Monday, especially in our southernmost areas. With the clouds and onshore flow, Monday should be a bit on the cool side. Dry weather is expected from Tuesday through Thursday with only a chance of an isolated shower during this period.
