It will be a warm, steamy day with highs in the low to mid 80s. Once we get the heating of the day going and the sea breezes develop, storms will fire up mid-afternoon into the evening. Heavy downpours will be possible with the potential for 3 to 5 inches of rain as some storms may move slowly and linger.
