High pressure still has a grasp over the Central Plains, but it is beginning to weaken and we continue to bring in storm systems from the north. We’re still expected to see partly sunny skies throughout Friday and the weekend. However, heat and humidity will continue to climb. Expect mid-to-upper 90s for Saturday and Sunday, with feels-like temperatures in the lower triple digits. Trying to stay cool and hydrated will be key.

We’ll finally break down high pressure as an area of low pressure enters from the northwest by Monday. Scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms are looking likely for us, but not widespread. The best bet for wet weather will be Tuesday morning. As this particular area of low pressure and its respective frontal boundary move on to the east, cooler air takes its place and temperatures fall dramatically back to the lower 80s for daytime highs, with morning lows in the 50s and 60s. We’ll keep these temperatures moving through the rest of the next school week and into the following weekend.
