Tuesday will see temperatures quickly climb into the upper 80s at the beach and lower 90s inland. High humidity will push the heat index to near 100 for the afternoon and early evening. The developing sea breeze will spark off a few showers and storms near the beaches around midday. As the sea breeze pushes inland, so will the risk of a few downpours at times.
More of the same is expected by Wednesday and Thursday with daily temperatures ranging from near 90 at the beach to the lower and middle 90s inland. Each afternoon and evening will see the continued risk of a few storms from time to time.
