Monday starts muggy and mostly cloudy with temperatures around 70°. Scattered clouds will be with us for a good chunk of the morning; this should keep numbers steady until about 10am. Early this afternoon highs will start climbing close to 90° with a solid case of the muggies; in other words, you're going to be sweating a bit more during the walk to the mailbox. A weak upper level disturbance is spinning just north of the Florida/Georgia line, this will collide with the Atlantic sea breeze later this afternoon. You care about that fact because it'll spark off showers and storms close to I-75 in Florida and Georgia, some of those will try to throw down hail and gusty winds. Everyone west of there watch for spotty sub-severe storms with wind, lightning and heavy rain. Beach goers, have at it! The storms that pop today will be predominately inland with marine conditions nothing shy of perfect. Waves and wind will be low and temperatures will be high; sunblock is up if you don't want to get sunburned. We'll be rather repetitive for the next 4-5  days in the weather world; spotty storms will be possible each afternoon as highs dance around 90°. Meanwhile it'll be plenty muggy with lows in the mid and upper 60s. At this point, and admittedly we're a ways out, but Memorial Day weekend looks fine but warm with only a small chance at isolated afternoon storms. I know you have plans for the weekend and we're keeping a close eye!
