Forecast: Storms ahead of slight cooldown

A line of storms will be blowing through the Bay Area over the next day, bringing a chance of low chance of severe weather with it.

Scattered rain, wind, and some lightning is expected overnight and into Tuesday morning ahead of a cold front. The line of storms was looking ominous on radar over the Gulf of Mexico on Monday afternoon, but forecasters expect it will fall apart somewhat as it comes ashore.

Lifeguards at Clearwater Beach were flying yellow flags Monday as winds picked up, creating rough surf and stornger currents.

The National Weather Service says there is a “marginal” chance of severe weather Tuesday, which is just below “slight” on the forecast scale.

Those showers will give way to slightly cooler temperatures on Tuesday and Wednesday – highs still around 80 – before temperatures start to tick back up.

“By the time we get into the second half of the week and into the weekend, all that heat and humidity, it’s all coming right back,” FOX 13 meteorologist Jim Weber warmed.
