Showers and thunderstorms are likely late Thursday evening into the predawn hours of Friday. Lows tomorrow night will be mild, only falling into the upper 50s.
Friday looks nice, with skies becoming mostly sunny and temperatures still a bit above normal. We'll see highs in the mid 70s to close out the work week.
THE WEEKEND: Warm weather continues into Saturday and Sunday. Saturday looks to bring us lots of sunshine, and while most of Sunday appears dry, chances for showers and thunderstorms arrive Sunday night as a system over the Plains draws closer. We'll have highs in the upper 70s to near 80 both weekend days.
UNSETTLED NEXT WEEK: Looks like April closes out on a stormy note. Showers and thunderstorms are likely Monday into Tuesday, with chances for rain persisting into Wednesday. Some storms Monday could be strong, with potential for heavy rain and minor flooding also present early next week. The week should begin with seasonably warm temperatures before much cooler air arrives toward the end of the period.
