Showers/storms will continue to pass through part of tonight.

Main severe weather corridor will set up with line just southwest & south of our area.  It is tracking there along instability & temperature/height gradient due to such a cloudy day & cooler temperatures in our area.  That shifted the gradient southward.

For us, an isolated severe storm or two cannot be ruled out up to around 2 a.m. or so, otherwise, the threat is locally-heavy rainfall with some places seeing 1-3", while others get much less.

It should all taper to just a few lingering spotty/isolated showers late.  Some fog may develop in areas that see some clearing.

Clouds/sun tomorrow should give way to spotty showers/t'showers bubbling up in the heating of the day.  Winds will be northwest at 10-15 mph.

It will still be muggy with dew points 70-75 & highs 81-86 (after 67-71 in the morning for lows).  It will feel more like 87-95 at peak heating.

Locally-heavy rainfall is possible from any heavier cells.

Areas of dense fog are possible Wednesday morning with lows 60-65.

Isolated showers/t'showers will bubble up Wednesday with sun/clouds & 79-84 with a slow decrease in the humidity.  Winds look northwest at 10-15 mph.

Thursday looks good with partly cloudy skies & 78-83 with low humidity after patchy fog & 50s in the morning.  Lows Thursday night may run 51-56 with 81-86 Friday (with partly cloudy skies).

Saturday looks hotter & more humid with dew points surging to 68-73 with highs 86-90.

Storms are possible in the PM.

A complex of storms with severe risk is possible Sunday in the PM with highs 90-95 & heat indices 101-106.

Monday may be a hair cooler at 85-90 with heat indices 90-95, but 90s may return for more late-season intense heat next week.

More storms with severe risk may follow with transition to cooler weather as we get towards Labor Day.
