As the front passes, some of this area of low pressure will then pull in cooler drier air from up north. This will result in daytime highs only achieving the upper 60s and lower 70s this afternoon. As we move into the overnight, an area of high pressure will develop from the west and slowly track across the central plains . This high-pressure system will force the front to move east and block the next front from up north from developing a wet weather threat through Thursday and Friday. This will allow us to bring back some of that warmth we saw just a few days ago. Thursday afternoon mid 70s will be common for daytime highs with partly cloudy skies, and by Friday we’re back into the upper 70s and lower 80s, which is seasonal for the beginning of June.

By the start of the weekend, a new area of low pressure and front develops, but seems rather disorganized in our forecast model runs. There was an opportunity for some instability by the end of the week and transitioning into the first couple of days of the next work week, which may allow for a couple of isolated severe storms, but scattered showers in traditional end of spring thunderstorm activity will be more common. Daytime highs during this time frame will remain in the upper 70s and lower 80s.
