A cold front to our northwest will be slowly be tracking to the southeast. Ahead of it, it will be warm and humid with temperatures in the middle 80s to near 90°. Wind will be south 10-15 mph.
Important to note: the front as slowed down a bit, delaying the start of showers and storms.

A slight risk of severe weather is in place, with damaging wind, heavy rain and large hail the primary risks.
Tonight: Rain and thunderstorms will continue. Locally heavy rain is possible. As the front drops through the area, overnight temperatures will be in the lower 60s north to near 70° south.
Wednesday: The front stalls to our south, keeping showers and storms in the forecast. The best chance of this is near and south of Highway 20. High temperatures will be in the middle to upper 70s, and it will still be a bit humid.
