Detailed Forecast

Today: One more day of toasty temperatures across the region. Thursdays highs are expected to reach the low 90s. Skycast models are showing thunderstorm activity throughout the afternoon, with the heaviest impacts north of the burn scars. However if these storms do drop further south localized flooding is not out of the question. 

Tonight:  Anticipating monsoonal moisture across our area, lingering showers through the evening are likely. Temperatures expected to cool to the low to mid 60s. 

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.
