Tracking strong storms overnight, lower humidity over the weekend

TONIGHT: Warm and humid with storms moving in late. Some storms could be severe with heavy rain and strong winds. Lows in the low to mid-70s.

TOMORROW: Rain exiting by mid-morning with clouds gradually decreasing. Highs in the upper 80s to around 90.

EXTENDED: The front that triggered a few storms last night is sitting just to our north, and will be influenced by increasing low level winds tonight that will force storms to develop into a line along the boundary. There could be a storm out ahead of the front between 10:00 p.m. and 1:00 a.m. that could produce large hail and locally gusty winds, but the more widespread threat for damaging winds will be after midnight and will start just north of our viewing area and spread southeast through the overnight hours. A few storms could still be on the stronger side toward daybreak along or just south of I-70. Storms diminish by mid-morning, leaving us cooler with decreasing clouds through the day. Highs reach about 90 degrees north of the front that will be settled south of Highway 50. Humidity looks to ease for the weekend with dew point temperatures in the low 60s and air temperatures between 90-92 Saturday and Sunday. The heat and humidity returns next week with highs in the upper 90s on Monday, and near 100 on Tuesday. Heat index values will likely get to WAD criteria on Tuesday. By mid-week, the jet stream starts to flatten a bit, allowing disturbances to trigger a chance for storms Wednesday and Thursday.
