What a difference between this Sunday evening and last night’s crazy lightning show! Weather Watcher Eddie Corral sent a picture (below) of a microburst from yesterday’s storms. A microburst is a rapid and massive collapse of mass in a thunderstorm toward the ground, which can cause strong surface winds. Though we are quiet tonight, instability levels and high levels of moisture return Monday. Monday afternoon/evening could be pretty “bumpy.” Here’s your forecast…

TONIGHT: Look for partly cloudy skies with a much lower chance for an isolated area t-storm.  Skies will turn clear late evening.  The NE wind will range from 5-15 mph, and the low will be 72.
FORECAST: Monday will start out sunny but end up with widely scattered, potentially strong t-showers.  With a high of 96, some storms could become strong and produce brief, heavy rainfall.  The east winds will range from 5-15 mph.  Tuesday will be mostly cloudy with a high of 89 with scattered t-showers and moments of brief, heavy rainfall.  Wednesday will be a cloudy, muggy day with a high of 83.  Expect widely scattered showers and t-showers with brief, heavy rain.  Thursday will bring mostly cloudy with scattered t-showers and the threat of brief, heavy rain.  Thursday’s high:  79. Friday will be partly cloudy with scattered t-showers and a high of 84.  Saturday will be partly cloudy and 87 with isolated area storms.  Sunday will be partly cloudy and 86 with isolated area storms.
