In terms of severe weather, we are included within a Marginal Risk for damaging winds being of primary concern. The timing of some thunder and isolated stronger storms will be in the later afternoon and evening hours with daytime heating and enough moisture coming into play.


Again, rain chances really ramp up through Wednesday morning and continue through the early morning hours.
