Clouds took a little while to break up after morning showers and thunderstorms, which limited the buildup of energy in the atmosphere. But now that we’ve got some daytime heating, some hit-or-miss showers and storms are possible as we head into the evening hours. A few of these storms could become quite strong. After some early-morning showers tomorrow, the heat and humidity build back in again for Monday.
