NOWCAST THROUGH EVENING: Increasing clouds. Showers and thunderstorms moving in from the west late evening. 6pm: Partly Sunny 75° 8pm: Mostly Cloudy 71° 10pm: Showers, Storms Developing 68°
COOLER (BUT STILL WARM) FRIDAY: A frontal system quickly sweeps through overnight with showers and thunderstorms likely. A few storms could be strong with gusty winds. Any lingering rain early Friday will end by mid-morning, with skies turning mostly sunny. It will be cooler tomorrow, but temperatures will remain a little above normal, topping out in the mid 70s. Friday night looks tranquil and seasonably cool.
THE WEEKEND: Very warm weather - some of the warmest of the year - will be the story of the weekend. Saturday looks to bring us lots of sunshine, and while most of Sunday appears dry, chances for showers and thunderstorms arrive Sunday evening as a system over the Plains draws closer. We'll have highs in the low to mid 80s 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 and Thursday. 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.
