We’ll start our day dry before scattered showers and storms develop in the afternoon hours. Activity will keep going into Tuesday night with instances of heavy downpours possible.
There is even a low risk for isolated strong to severe storms Tuesday afternoon. Wind and hail are the main concerns.
Highs look to top out in the upper 70s to low 80s. It will also be a little bit more humid, so it will feel slightly more uncomfortable.
