    So far the storms are still west of Gastonia, but moving towards Charlotte.

    Temperatures warmed back up into upper 80s. A high of 87 degrees is expected Monday.

    A few isolated downpours are expected Monday afternoon but nothing like what fell around the Charlotte area Sunday.

    The heat will really start to build Tuesday -- it could be the warmest day so far this year with highs near 92 degrees. It won’t be close to the record high of 99 degrees though.

    A weak front moves through by mid-week and this will bring a better chance of afternoon showers and storms Wednesday and Thursday.
