With an area of low pressure within the upper levels transferring in from Colorado in combination with a deepening front from Nebraska, scattered shower and storm activity will develop overnight tonight into Saturday.

Friday morning through the daytime, partly-cloudy to mostly-cloudy skies will be common, with temperatures starting off in the low and mid 60s, and peaking within the middle and upper 80s between 3 and 5 p.m. Mild, breezy conditions are expected at 10 to 15 mph out of the south or south/southwest. The front that we interact with through this weekend remains further north and doesn’t technically pass overhead. This is one of the reasons why we keep warm, moist air filtering in through the weekend and into the next work week.

Afternoon high temperatures are expected in the mid 90s by Monday, with the feels-like temperature ranging between 101 and 105 degrees. We have a very good chance of record-breaking heat both Monday and Tuesday from the 1940s and 1950s. We will finally see a deepening of cooler air by the end of the week, with a small opportunity for isolated showers to develop due to a passing cold front. This will drop temperatures back from mid 90s to low mid 70s.
