A stationary boundary to our north will lead to a chance for scattered showers and storms again for our Tuesday. That rain chance lowers tonight but doesn’t completely go away. That same boundary will move closer to us on Wednesday and be the focus for more showers and storms throughout the rest of the week and into the weekend. Any storm that develops could produce torrential rainfall, frequent lightning, and gusty winds that could become locally damaging.

National Day of What? (New!)
July 26 is National All or Nothing Day!
We all have dreams we hold back, decisions left to make, or plans uncompleted. On this day, people break free of everything holding them back. Everyone has at least one thing that they would like to overcome, need to do or want to do but might be fearful or hesitant to do so. This is the day to go ahead and do it, take that first step and go for it. (https://nationaldaycalendar.com/)
