This is the area that didn’t experience much rain earlier in the day and will likely be more unstable with afternoon heating.

Much like the last few days, the any showers that do form with daytime heating will fade after sunset and into the evening hours.

Fewer showers are expected for the remainder of the week with only isolated storms expected. More widespread rain will become common towards late weekend into the first part of next week.
