This morning brought a few rounds of showers and thunderstorms which left over from a few dying nocturnal complexes. As of now, we’re waiting on the next round to show up. Temperatures are still hot, and the spike in humidity has made it a sultry afternoon.

The next round of storms will fire off this afternoon and evening. Conditions are less favorable for severe thunderstorm development this evening, thanks to the morning rounds of showers and storms. Still an isolated cell may get strong and push severe criteria. The highest chance for that will be in the extreme south or southeastern counties. Storms will wind down and move out overnight. That will leave cloudy conditions overnight with a few lingering storms possible. Expect morning fog, especially in the river valleys thanks to the rain and added moisture. The dew point will still be high tomorrow morning so that will aid in fog development. As Wednesday wears on, cloud coverage will decrease, fog will dissipate, and the air will begin to dry out. A few afternoon, isolated pop-ups are possible, mainly south of Interstate 64. The end of the week will bring slightly cooler and drier air, along with lower rain chances.
