However, I do have some good news… Friday’s not Lost!
Friday – Clearing after Morning; High 77˚ / Friday Night – Clear; Low 51°
The cold front will depart from the region Friday morning. High pressure will move into the region behind the exiting cold front, giving us improving conditions. Cloudy skies should gradually clear out and temperatures will warm nicely into the upper 70s.
Saturday- Beautiful Weather; Mostly Clear; High 79° / Sat Night – Partly Cloudy; Low 54°
We’ll have an enjoyable Saturday as well. Beautiful weather is in store with mostly clear conditions allowing for highs near 80°. We’ll see a little increase in clouds as our next weather maker forms in the Plains. Our next shot at rain and thunderstorms will be on Sunday and Sunday night. Some strong to severe storms cannot be ruled out for Monday, but stay tuned.
