TODAY: Storms exit early and skies clear by the afternoon. Highs in the mid-80s. An isolated storm is possible late afternoon.
TOMORROW: Showers and storms in the morning, some potentially severe. Highs in the upper 70s.
EXTENDED: Saturday is largely dry with the exception of a pop-up storm or two in the heat of the day. As a cold front approaches from the north on Sunday, it will bring the chance for more widespread rain and storms, with the potential for some to become severe. If storms arrive earlier in the morning as some forecast models are suggesting, our severe weather threat would be lower. Ahead of the front is where the highest severe potential will lie in the afternoon, so right now it looks like our best bet would be south of I-70. Given the uncertainty, we'll hold off on issuing a Weather Alert Day for now. If a Weather Alert Day is issued, it would be for damaging wind. We'll cool down in the wake of that rain on Sunday and Monday with highs in the upper 70s. Monday is dry, but the upper level pattern begins to shift enough to allow several disturbances to roll in through the week, with the best rain chances on Wednesday and Thursday. Southwest upper level winds will bring in warmer air by the end of the week, with highs getting back into the mid-upper 80s on Thursday and Friday.
