Additional scattered showers/storms will develop today.  Given oppressive, muggy, unstable airmass with cold front arriving, storms should take on a multi-cellular character with a few short line segments.  Better wind fields aloft & shear are projected to be north & northeast of our area, but slight amounts with the mentioned factors above bring about MARGINAL RISK of severe weather.  This means isolated severe storms are possible.

Given the water available, locally-heavy rainfall is possible.  This occurring over wetter soils of lastnight's heavy storms could result in some localized flash flooding.

This would occur afternoon to early tonight.

Wednesday looks dry, but storms may return Thursday &/or Friday.

It appears that the active storm track area on the periphery of heat wave is setting a little farther northeast than expected.  That said, we look pretty active with showers/storm potential on this periphery off & on right into next week.  Although we will tend to be on the cooler side of the ridge with the rainfall, eventually it will expand & we will turn back to 90-95 for a few days (in mid-August) with heat indices +100.  This could get to 109, given wet soils that are now expected (increases the humidity & therefore the heat indices).
