The clouds will thicken as the day goes on.

Temperatures are expected to reach the mid to upper 80s.

It will be a little breezy at times and gusty winds could accompany thunderstorms that may develop this afternoon.

For those headed to the coast the surf is still rough and a small craft advisory remains in place through four this afternoon for boaters.

Rain coverage is around 40 percent, so not everyone will see a storm today, those that do could get heavy rain at times.

The rain will taper off later tonight.

It will be cloudy and mild in the low 70s.

Rain chances ramp up to 50 percent through the weekend.
