With high humidity levels expected to continue into the afternoon and evening Tuesday, a few showers and storms will develop after 3 p.m. Like Monday, only about 20-30% of the area will see any activity. If you are under one of these showers, expect brief heavy rainfall and some gusty winds. It will also help to cool down the incredibly hot air.

A marginal risk of severe weather (a level one of five) has been issued by the Storm Prediction Center (SPC) Tuesday afternoon and evening. The main threat will be isolated storms producing hail and damaging winds.

These showers and storms will diminish quickly after sunset with partly cloudy skies for the remainder of the night with lows back in the middle 70s.
