Although forecasters say the odds are “low,” possible thunderstorms can arrive as early as 12 p.m. to 3 a.m. Monday in Monterey County. “Isolated” thunderstorms are then expected to track north into the Santa Cruz County area from 3 a.m. to 6 a.m.

The majority of the Bay Area can expect thunderstorms between 6 a.m. and 9 a.m., according to a map from the NWS. The northernmost parts of Marin and Napa counties can expect thunderstorms from late Monday morning to early afternoon.
