Slight storm chances, some clouds in weekend beach forecast

A decent Saturday, albeit with some slight storm chances, and a gloomier Sunday are expected this weekend in Ocean City.

Mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies are forecast Saturday, with highs around 80 degrees, for a nice beach day. About a 20 percent chance of isolated storms is forecast in the afternoon, however, according to the National Weather Service.

Winds are expected to pick up late Saturday and through Sunday, coming from the south at 15-20 mph.

Mostly cloudy skies and high humidity are forecast Sunday, with chances for storms in the afternoon and evening. Storms could be severe, with meteorologists watching forecasts closelt for threats of hail and isolated tornadoes.

The water is a comfortable 68 to 72 degrees, and rip current risks were low on Friday, but check with lifeguards for up to date conditions over the weekend.
