Weather forecast: thunderstorms, warm temperatures ahead

RECOMMENDED READING


This week will bring scattered thunderstorms and warm temperatures to the bay area, with the chance of rain increasing Thursday and Friday.

Bay News 9 forecasters predicted temperatures would hover near the 90s during the day and drop into the mid-70s at night. Tuesday and Wednesday will reach highs of 90 degrees, while Monday night should dip to 72 degrees and register as the coolest of the week.

Rain chances should be fair early in the week, Bay News 9 Meteorologist Juli Marquez said Monday morning, due to an east wind and an area of high pressure north of Florida.

A 30 percent chance of scattered thunderstorms was expected to last until Thursday. Mornings, Marquez said, should be mostly clear, with rain expected later in the day.

"It's going to be mainly in the afternoons," Marquez said.

As an area of low pressure currently situated over the Caribbean moves toward Florida, it will bring along a higher chance of rain, topping out around 50 percent Thursday and Friday.

Meanwhile, Tropical Storm 11 may become the season's next named storm. But its position far out in the Eastern Atlantic means it's unlikely to impact North America, Marquez said.

For a little context, here's a look at temperatures around the country this week. Feel free to pout or gloat as you see fit.

New York: High of 82 degrees Wednesday, low of 57 degrees Monday night

Chicago: High of 84 degrees Tuesday, low of 51 degrees Monday

Los Angeles: High of 90 degrees Friday, low of 59 degrees Thursday

Minneapolis: High of 83 degrees Monday, low of 51 degrees Tuesday

U.S. High: Yuma, Ariz. will reach 95 degrees Monday.

U.S. Low: Bryce Canyon, Utah will drop to 24 degrees Monday.
