STORMS TO ENTER WEEKEND, THEN WARM AND DRY
Temperatures will stay above average as we go through the next 7 days. There is a chance of strong to possibly severe t-storms Friday evening. Then after a chance of remnant showers through the weekend, we will enter a drier weather pattern through next workweek. There will be more sun and highs will remain well into the 70s, even as average highs fall into the 60s.

THURSDAY: High pressure is in charge to our south and east. We have a nice and warm day in store with plenty of sunshine. Highs will be in the upper 70s south and near 70 north.
FRIDAY AND SATURDAY: A low and its fronts will move south to northeast across our forecast area. We will have mostly cloudy skies and showers/t-storms will be likely into Friday evening. There is a chance of a late-season severe weather event, with large hail and damaging winds possible with these storms, a tornado warning cannot be ruled out, as well as isolated flash flooding. The severe threat will diminish into the early overnight, and some scattered showers are possible through the day on Saturday. Highs Friday will be near 80 south and in the lower 70s north. We lose about 10 degrees from that for highs on Saturday.
SUNDAY AND MONDAY: We will have partly to mostly cloudy skies for Sunday, and still can't rule out a passing shower. Sunday will be our coolest day of the week with highs near normal, which is near 70 south and the lower 60s north. We add a few degrees for Monday as another warming trend continues. High pressure will give us mainly sunny skies to start the workweek.
TUESDAY AND WEDNESDAY: We will be mainly dry for this timeframe with partly to mostly sunny skies. There is just a slight chance of showers/t-storms for Tuesday. Highs remain in the 70s for most.
