Stronger uplift in purple and blue colors in this loop — Looks like the best lift occurs Wednesday morning/early afternoon, then possibly another round of better lift late tomorrow afternoon/early evening — So the greatest chance for scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms look to be Wednesday morning, and again late Wednesday afternoon/early evening.
