Scattered Showers & Storms for Start of the Week

Clouds got locked in on Sunday and really kept temperatures low for an August afternoon, with highs staying in the 80s. 

That's not what it felt like, however, as it felt very similar to a steam room outside for the majority of the day with a heat index in the mid to upper 90s. 

The weather was the result of an upper level disturbance which was the primary reason why showers were able to really get going Sunday afternoon. 

This disturbance will slowly slide to the southwest during the beginning of the work week, which could keep clouds and scattered showers hanging around on Monday. 

As this low exits the area the trough to the east will be allowed to deepen which will push a front through the area Tuesday morning. 

Along the front will be round of widespread showers moving through on Tuesday and the front should hit the coast by the afternoon. 

Conditions should start to dry out by the end of the week as we get back to a more typical summer weather pattern. 

In the tropics there is a new area of interest that has emerged off the African coast this morning, although development won't occur immediately it will be worth watching. 

Right now the National Hurricane Center is giving it a 10% chance of development in the next 2 days, but by the end of the work week the chance will be up to about 40%. 

Model runs on Invest 94L are only now starting to come out so it's still too early to put out a forecast track.
