Humidity is on the rise as high temperatures top out in the low 80s today, and as moisture levels rise so do the chances for rain. While the remainder of the afternoon should be dry, the evening into overnight and portions of tomorrow could be a different story.
Tonight: Starting around 6 p.m., we will have a chance of isolated showers and thunderstorms entering the area. Rain chances will increase to 50% near midnight as more widespread activity moves in. Portions of the region may see .25"-.50", with isolated higher amounts, but the most intense activity should remain north of the metro area. Some storms may contain briefly heavy rain and strong gusty winds. Lows will hit the mid 60s as a southerly wind continues to feed moisture into the area.
Tomorrow: We should have a bit of a break in the thunderstorm action during the morning and mid-day hours on Wednesday, with maybe a few lingering showers, but thunderstorms once again enter the picture by afternoon. Depending on the amount of sunshine we see, temperatures should range from the mid to upper 80s. Afternoon storms that form and pass through tomorrow afternoon and evening may be strong to severe, with the main threat being damaging wind. There will also be a slight risk of tornadic activity.
