While the Los Angeles area may see a chance of thunderstorms on Monday, there will be sunny skies through the rest of the week.

Even though Norbert has weakened to a tropical rainstorm, it will continue to churn the seas, threatening the shorelines of Southern California with high surf.

The surf may be rough enough to cause dangers to swimmers in the form of strong rip currents, according to Senior Meteorologist Alex Sosnowski.

The Los Angeles Dodgers will open host the San Diego Padres for the final three games of a nine-game home stand beginning Monday night.

Low clouds will give way to sun on Tuesday and Wednesday. The low cloud coverage could lead to travel delays for those flying into or out of Los Angeles International Airport.
