Passions flared Tuesday outside Liberty University, dozens of protesters waving signs for hours, hundreds of drivers honking their horns in support.
While many people who have taken part in demonstrations have worn face coverings, the nature of the protests bring large groups of people together in small areas.
Hot and humid weather moves in today with stronger storms on Thursday.
