Tuesday's weather will be better than Monday but we are not out of the woods yet. Partly sunny skies will push temperatures to the upper 70s today, bringing some evening storms that could approach severe.
Gusty winds, hail, frequent lightning and heavy rain leading to localized flooding will be the main threats.

The Tri-State is under a SLIGHT RISK of severe storms.
The severe weather threat comes to an end by Wednesday and the rest of the week is looking cooler and a little calmer. Nuisance rain showers are still possible through Saturday with highs falling into the upper 50s.
While the chance for rain diminishes starting on Wednesday, we still run, at least, a 40 percent chance for rain all week. Otherwise, we will see mostly cloudy skies with periodic sunshine and cooler highs near 60 degrees.
