PM Update: Warm with scattered showers and storms

The weather we’ve experienced today is likely a preview of what we’ll get tomorrow. By and large it’s seasonably warm and humid, but - with little notice - showers and thunderstorms pop-up during the favored late afternoon and evening hours. These storms won’t provide meaningful, drought-denting rain, but we’ll take what we can get.

Through Tonight: Scattered showers and storms - a few locally heavy with strong wind gusts and small hail - are possible (30-40 percent chance), especially until dark. After dark, odds of showers/storms drop to 20 percent and intensity should wane a bit. Outside of storms, it’s partly to mostly cloudy and mild with lows 68-74 (suburbs-city).

Wednesday: Skies are partly to mostly cloudy with a 40 percent chance of showers and storms. Like today, a few may be locally heavy and may develop with little notice (carry an umbrella). We should have enough in the way of cloud cover to keep high temperatures below 90 , mainly in the mid-to-upper 80s.
