The risk for severe weather returns during the late-afternoon, Mike says. Not everyone will see rain but thunderstorms will roll through the area bringing the chance for rain through the evening hours. The heat and humidity with chances for PM thunderstorms will stay with us all week – including on the July 4th holiday.
