More storms will move through the area overnight and especially on Tuesday morning. It doesn’t look like these storms will be severe, but they still could produce gusty thunderstorm winds up to 35 mph. Temperatures will cool after a weather system moves through Tuesday but not as drastically as we saw last week. Here’s the latest timing of these showers and storms:
Scattered rain chances are in the forecast Monday with storms possible by Tuesday.

With our first chances of severe weather occurring at the end of last week, and another chance headed our way this week (late Tue/early Wed), I wanted to post this graphic from the Storm Prediction Center.
