Synopsis: A cold front stalled near the coast or just offshore will allow for isolated to scattered showers through the day, with a better chance of showers and thunderstorms tonight and into early Monday as the front is driven southeast by an upper level trough. In the wake of the front, rains will come to an end with a brief period of modest offshore winds developing. Winds turn east and then southeast on Tuesday as this front lifts back to the north. South winds will strengthen a bit Wednesday ahead of another cold front forecast to cross the coastal waters Wednesday night, with a light to modest offshore flow behind this front closing out the week.
