SARASOTA, Fla. (WWSB) - Thunderstorm action is minimal here on Sunday, mainly just a very few storms far east of the beaches by afternoon. On Memorial Day, the morning and early afternoon still look quiet. Then thunderstorms start to flare up in the heat of the afternoon, moving toward the beaches into the evening hours. Whatever your Memorial Day plans, it’s a good idea to have an indoor Plan B, especially later in the day. Tuesday could also see some afternoon storms, then our rain chances drop to end the week.

Hurricane season is on for the Pacific now. The Pacific season started May 15th, and Saturday Tropical Storm Agatha developed. Agatha is likely to briefly become a hurricane before it hits the west coast of Mexico with heavy rain and flooding Monday. The remnants of Agatha will cross Mexico during the week, possibly pushing into the southern Gulf of Mexico. The storm has a 30% chance of developing into a tropical storm in early June. June 1st is the official start of hurricane season for the Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico.
