Here’s what you need to know about the Bay area weather for Monday:
- Some marine showers, storms in the Gulf
- Monday morning muggy, light winds

There will be partly sunny skies with scattered showers and thunderstorms today.
We have light winds this morning then a sea breeze will develop along both the west and east coasts. The chance of scattered showers and storms begins at our coast then moves east across the Tampa Bay area.
This will cause the highest chances of showers and thunderstorms to shift inland over the interior counties through the afternoon. Some of the storms could be strong and produce locally heavy rain.
The chance of rain is 40 percent.

High temperatures will be in the low 90s this afternoon.
Tonight will be partly cloudy with isolated showers and thunderstorms. Low temperatures will be in the upper 70s in Tampa Bay and the low 70s in our northern counties.
An area of high pressure across the central Florida peninsula moves slowly south tonight and Tuesday while a front stalls across the Southeast U.S.
Tuesday and Wednesday, the winds will shift to a more defined onshore west to southwest wind. This will allow for the rain and storm chances to start early at the coast.
Then the showers and storms will shift more inland and eastward as the sea breeze pushes farther inland.
With westerly winds, daytime highs will be in the upper 80s at the coast to the low 90s inland, while overnight lows will remain in the mid 70s to 80 degrees.
