A cold front will push through the area during the afternoon, passing through the metro around 4pm. That will switch our winds from southwest to northwest, and will lead to cooling temperatures for the early evening. Ahead of that front, a few spotty storms are possible, mainly south of the metro. A strong storm or two is possible, but widespread severe weather is not expected. Most in the metro will stay dry.
