Saturday night features a low risk for strong to severe storms as a slow-moving front progresses across the area. The primary concerns are locally heavy rain, gusty winds, and maybe some hail. The front looks to clear the coastline by sunrise Sunday, leading to a much nicer end to the weekend. It is, however short-lived as a gulf disturbance brings the return of at least showers on Monday depending on how close to the coast it tracks. Sunshine and warmth will be sandwiched in between that, and another late week front that looks to bring a more promising cool-down.
