The storms will weaken during the day but redevelop again tomorrow afternoon with the heating of the atmosphere. A few thunderstorms will continue during the evening followed by scattered showers Wednesday.

A ridge of upper-level high pressure will influence the late-week weather with a dry forecast Thursday through Saturday. The influence of the sea breeze from the coast could bring a few showers/thunderstorms to areas east of I-35 late Sunday afternoon.
