By overnight tonight into the early morning of a Friday, we transition into an area of low pressure with its respective warm front leading the way. This means we do have an opportunity for showers and more thunderstorms. The timing of the most impactful storm activity is more likely between the hours of 2 a.m. and 6 a.m. Friday morning, with damaging winds and hail development being most of our concern rather than the development of tornado activity. Our tornado threat is still not at 0% so we still must stay alert to the potential for tornadoes. Once past mid-morning on Friday, a dryer pattern does take over and we’ll see another partly sunny, warm, muggy day late on Friday.

Temperatures remain in the low 80s. This weekend we do have plenty of sunshine on Saturday with now a small new opportunity for a few scattered showers and week thunderstorms into Sunday afternoon. This will not be a washout for the weekend at all but stay alert to the opportunity for some umbrella weather Sunday. Temperatures are on the rise dramatically now.

A surge of warm air from the southwest builds across the central plains and by Saturday will be dealing with more mid-80s than low-80s and on Sunday or more likely to reach the 90° mark. Moving forward into the next work week temperatures look to peak between 94 and 97° on Monday and potentially Friday of next week.

Feels-like temperatures are expected in the lower triple digits. This means our impactful weather will switch gears from severe storms to major heat. Try to stay cool and hydrated moving past this Friday.
