Scattered showers and thunderstorms return to the weather picture on Thursday. We should see a little greater coverage of storms than we saw today given weakening high pressure at the surface and even more robust moisture in place. Temperatures once again will only top out in the mid-80s with showers and storms in the area after a mild start in the 70s. Convective temperatures look fairly low — model soundings generally suggest around 80° — so we should see showers begin to initiate within 2-3 hours of sunrise. Storm motions will be inland, and we should see a break in the rain closer to the coast in the late afternoon/early evening hours as the seabreeze makes its westward progression. With any luck, we’ll get more much-needed rainfall across even more of the area than we saw today.
