Shower and thunderstorm chances return heading into the upcoming weekend

Shower and thunderstorm chances return heading into the upcoming weekend

By the weekend, highs will reach toward the upper 80s and there will be scattered showers and storms each day, once again mainly in the afternoon and evening. Cloudy - low around 72.

Temperatures will break above the 80-degree barrier Saturday and mostly keep rising through next Thursday, forecasters say. Calm wind becoming south 5 to 8 miles per hour in the morning. The low at night will be around 65. While upper-level winds are forecast to become more favorable for development by the weekend, dry air aloft could limit the system's thunderstorm activity, making the overall environment only marginally conducive.

Saturday: Mostly sunny - high near 83. Wind: SE/E 5-10. Low: 67.

A high near 82 is expected Saturday, with partly sunny skies.

Friday: Partly cloudy, low humidity.

We'll have a sunny, warm Wednesday at the fairgrounds. Sunday is dry with partly cloudy skies. Scattered showers and storms will pas through the Eastern Plains on Monday, just to dry things out on Tuesday. The overnight low will be 71.

We're tracking one disturbance after another across the Southeast and this is resulting in more rain and occasional thunderstorms. Mostly sunny - high near 87. Chance of precipitation is 50 percent. Mostly cloudy - low around 71.

"The flood and flash flood threat will continue to increase through the weekend as more rounds of showers and thunderstorms impact the region", meteorologists state in the hazardous weather outlook. Partly sunny - high near 89. We simply aren't dealing with massive rainstorms - these are much more of the pop-up variety, some timing them more than a day or two out is extremely hard.
