Tracking heat and chances for storms tonight and tomorrow night

TONIGHT: Storms developing along a cold front north of I-70. Some storms could be strong to severe after sunset through about midnight with damaging winds and hail. Lows in the mid-70s.

TOMORROW: Hot and humid with highs in the mid-90s and heat indices in the low 100s. Storms move back in after sunset.

EXTENDED: A slow moving cold front at the surface could trigger thunderstorms around sunset tonight as it hangs out north of I-70. Some storms could become strong to severe with plenty of instability present to fuel storms. As we lose daytime heating, storms will become less numerous and lose intensity going into the overnight hours. We'll start off dry and warm tomorrow morning, with temperatures starting out in the mid-70s. Expect another hot and humid day with the front staying to our north, pulling in gusty south winds. Highs reach the mid-90s with the heat index between 100-103. Another round of strong storms could develop around sunset once again near I-70, with damaging winds between 50-60 mph and 1" hail. Storms will likely hold on after midnight, but diminish toward sunrise. Hot temperatures hang on the rest of the week with heat indices near 100 the next 3 days. Over the weekend dew points drop into the lower 60s, bringing down the heat index. Highs remain in the 90s Saturday and Sunday with plenty of sunshine, so don't forget sunscreen as the UV index will be high. Next week is even hotter to start off with highs in the upper 90s to around 100 and a heat index topping 105 in some spots. The pattern begins to shift a bit toward the middle and end of next week with increasing chances for rain.
