First Alert Tuesday for a chance of some strong to sever thunderstorms.  The SPC has a "Marginal" risk of severe weather for much of the central and northern Midlands on Tuesday.  After the front passes a really nice shot of fall like High pressure will move in for a few days…the is drop the temperatures and really cut off the humidity big time.  You'll notice a big change in the way it feels.

August weather returns by late Friday into the weekend…a bit more humidity and a return to daily chance of afternoon storms.
