Notice how we reach our daytime high after the sun goes down. Reason for that… early afternoon rains are tacked onto the warm front passage. Once it’s through, we get a big push of mild air heading into sunset.

With that push of moisture and mild air comes greater instability. Strong to severe storms are possible toward the evening hours.

Storm Prediction Center has us under a “slight” risk for severe storms.
