That warmth and humidity will help fuel some powerful, loud thunderstorms on Monday.

Several days of pleasant weather should follow.

Along the Shore, it'll be a bit cooler - in the low 80s on Monday.

Wednesday: Partly sunny, chance a late day shower. While these early storms may grow to strong limits, they're just the appetizer.

The NWS says some storms could be severe, with large hail, damaging winds and heavy rain.

Wind gusts of 40 to 60 miles per hour are expected with the strongest storms.

A High Rip Current risk is also in effect through Monday night for Atlantic, Cape May and Ocean counties in New Jersey. Unfortunately, the timing of these ferocious storms will coincide with the evening rush hour. Heavy rain began to fall in Easton about 11:30 a.m. Models suggest the final thunderstorms will exit the coast by around Midnight (give or take). Localized amounts of up to 5 inches are possible, too.

Excessive runoff from heavy rainfall could cause flooding on highways, streets, underpasses, and other drainage areas and low lying spots.

A Flash Flood Warning has been issued for the low-lying and flood-prone areas of Kingston, St Andrew, St Thomas, St Mary, Portland, St Ann, Trelawny, Manchester, Clarendon and St Catherine.

Up to two to three inches of rain are forecast to fall in western MA through late Monday night, with lower amounts to the south and east. Low around 69. South wind 6 to 10 miles per hour. There is the outside chance of a brief tornado as well, especially as the storms first develop.

As a result, atmospheric conditions have become unstable, and deteriorating weather conditions are expected to continue throughout the weekend.

The line of storms was in Hagerstown around noon and was quickly moving east.

On Tuesday, while the front will pass through CT in the morning, it may stall nearby, just offshore.

If a severe thunderstorm warning is issued, move indoors immediately and stay away from windows. As always, never drive into roadways covered with flood water.
