Detailed Forecast

Tonight:  Lingering showers through the evening are likely, with storm coverage winding down by midnight. Temperatures expected to cool to the low to mid 60s. 

Tomorrow:  Your Friday will be very similar to your Thursday, with one change: more storms.  The "monsoonal flow" will be directly overhead, which means we'll have more fuel for the storms to develop and produce heavy rain.  The prime time for this will be between 2 and 8 pm.  Flash Flooding will be a big concern if any storms develop over area burn scars as the storms will be moving very slowly.  Highs will still be hot, another afternoon in to 90s/100s for plains, 70s/80s for mountains.

Tomorrow: As Friday roles around daytime highs will begin to drop into the 80s as the area of high pressure that has build over the state begins to break down. With increasing amount so atmospheric moisture, afternoon thunderstorms are likely for our area. 

Extended:  Noticeably cooler air will arrive this weekend.  Highs will drop into the lower to mid 80s.  Along with the cooler air we'll see higher storm chances.  Sunday and Tuesday look to be the most active days, with severe weather possible over the plains.  If we get enough rain over the burn scars, flash flooding will be a concern that we'll have to monitor closely.
