Today’s big impact is a threat of thunderstorms this afternoon and evening.

A significant severe weather outbreak is expected to our north today, but we’re in the less dramatic “slight risk” zone to the south.

Damaging winds, large hail and isolated tornadoes are possible during the late afternoon and evening.

Otherwise, it will be mostly cloudy, breezy, warm and humid.

Drier air will blow in overnight, and Sunday is looking like a pretty nice day with mainly sunny skies and much lower humidity levels.

The high on Tuesday will only be in the 50s.

The remainder of the week will have dry but cooler weather.
