There is a MARGINAL or low threat for storms to become severe because of the strength of the winds. Temperatures fall out of the 80s to the 70s and remain there this evening and overnight into the morning. Fog and hazy spots are likely Tuesday morning. It’s a very hot and

steamy day, with highs topping out in the lower 90s. A more potent system swings in late. Ahead of the front, there is a slight chance for early day showers and thunderstorms, but a greater threat in the evening until just after midnight. A good chunk of the area is under a SLIGHT risk for severe weather. This is a 2 on a scale of 1 to 5. Again, damaging winds are the main threat. Heavy downpours very likely with the high humidity.
