It may bode well to keep an umbrella handy for the evening commute. Those with outdoor plans after work hours should take proper precaution and seek indoor shelter at the first sign of a storm.

The threat for afternoon storms continues around midweek, but tapers off towards the weekend. Temperatures could be on the rise as well.
