A warm front will lift northward overnight allowing for patchy drizzle and areas of fog to develop. Lows will fall into the 60s. Thanks to the strong May sun, Monday morning fog will clear quickly as temperatures rebound into the lower 80s. Depending on the amount of sunshine, highs may inch a degree or two higher or lower. A few thunderstorms may pop, but chances are limited to about 40 percent.

Tuesday and Wednesday will be the warmest and most humid for the upcoming week. Afternoon temperatures will approach the middle 80s to near 90 degrees.
