The air mass is a little more stable today, so I keep the activity at a minimum, and more isolated, but there's a chance of a thunderstorm just about every afternoon and early evening. The chance is higher next Monday and Tuesday, as we're a little more unstable and have just a little extra lift.
Joe is calling for a low chance of thunderstorms from 4 pm to Midnight.

On this date in 1958, fan's of rock & roll music were warned that tuning into music on the car radio could cost you more money. Researchers from the Esso gas company said the rhythm of rock & roll could cause the driver to be foot heavy on the pedal, making them waste fuel. Did the Esso researchers listen to Beethoven or Tchaikovsky?
