TODAY: Tuesday is another brisk start, with temperatures starting near a seasonable mid-50s. By the afternoon, we've warmed into the low 80s under increasing cloud cover. A spot shower or two is possible this afternoon, but a more widespread chance for rain is likely with a round of thunderstorms likely after 7 p.m.
TONIGHT: Storms approaching from the northwest tonight will have severe potential, including the risk for damaging winds, large hail, and localized flooding. The rain may break up into two main rounds of storms. The first round coming shortly after 6-7 p.m., and another round after midnight. With the second round, storms should be diminishing in intensity as they arrive, but they will maintain a near severe level threat through about 3 a.m. Any strong storm beyond 3 a.m. would be most likely close to I-44.

EXTENDED: Showers and storms will be exiting Wednesday morning by 7-9 a.m. More sunshine and drier weather moves in for the afternoon, and tries to get us back into the low to middle 80s. Thursday, we catch a break with mostly sunny skies, and highs in the mid to upper 80s. The heat stops building Friday, as a cold front pushes in for the latter half of the day. This will bring a chance for storms and a cool down into the weekend. Saturday looks cool and wet at the moment. Showers look likely for much of the day, keeping highs in the upper 60s. With more sunshine, Sunday looks like the choice day this weekend. Monday, we warm back into the 70s under partly cloudy skies.
