*FLASH FLOOD WATCH IN EFFECT FOR THE SOUTHERN HALF OF THE AREA – THROUGH 1AM ON SATURDAY
What We’re Tracking:
- Increasing rain chance for southern half of the area tonight
- Storm chances along cold front late Friday
- Cooler and much more comfortable weather this weekend
An area or two of showers and storms will spread over the central and southern counties this evening and tonight with lows in the lower 70s.
Partial clearing on Friday ahead of an approaching cold front will allow us to warm into the middle to upper 80s. That heat and humidity will be the fuel for a few strong to severe storms along Friday’s cold front. The most likely time for the storms will be from late afternoon (along the Nebraska border) to late evening in the southern counties. If storms become severe, the primary threat would be for straight-line winds.
After the front, much drier and cooler air moves our way for the weekend. Highs in the upper 70s and lows in the 50s this weekend.
