Clouds are on the increase overnight and we continue to become more humid. Dew points are climbing back through the 60s and will sit near 70 Tuesday-making the day feel oppressive.
We are expecting a few rounds of showers and thunderstorms on Tuesday. The first round of storms arrive in the morning between roughly 7am and noon. Some of these storms could contain some heavy downpours and cloud to ground lightning. The second round arrives in the afternoon and evening. This line of storms looks to be a bit stronger than the morning storms and a few may become severe with damaging wind gusts, small hail or even an isolated tornado.
Behind this system it will once again dry out slightly for the rest of the work week. Temperatures on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday will reach into the 80s with dew points in the 60s.
