Tonight a series of upper level disturbances along with a weak front tracking east across the state tonight and Friday, could provide the focus for storms to form. There is still a question as to the extent of the storm development. If storms do fire, the potential is there for a few of them to turn severe with damaging winds and large hail the primary risks.
The Memorial Holiday is considered by many to mark the unofficial start to summertime. Temperatures this weekend, however, may have many thinking that summer has actually arrived. As an upper level ridge of high pressure builds over the Great Plains, mid 90 degree weather is certainly possible.
There are some days that have a better rain chance than others. No day looks to be washout, but rain can't be completely ruled out at any time on any day. The best chance of thunderstorms right now appears to be on Tuesday of next week.
TONIGHT: Partly to mostly cloudy with a 30% chance of showers and thunderstorms. Lows in the mid to upper 60s. South winds at 5 to 15 mph.
FRIDAY: Mostly sunny to partly cloudy with a slight chance of showers and thunderstorms. Highs in the upper 80s to low 90s. Southwest winds at 5 to 15 mph.
SATURDAY: Mostly sunny and hot. Highs in the lower to mid 90s. Light winds.
SUNDAY: Mostly sunny and hot. Slight chance for a t'storm late in the day or in the evening. Highs in the low to mid 90s.
MEMORIAL DAY: Sunshine mixing with a few clouds. 20% chance for a thunderstorm. Highs in the upper 80s to lower 90s.
