Good Friday morning everyone and thanks for clicking on myhighplains.com for your forecast! Find a good way to cool off and stay cool as the we continue to get blasted from summertime heat today and tomorrow, but temperatures start to back off on Sunday.
We'll have breezy southwest winds today with mostly sunny skies in the area, and there is a cold front coming to the Oklahoma Panhandle to bring a slim chance at storms, but unfortunately it won't be moving through to the south. Highs will reach the upper 90s and 100s again.
That weak boundary stays in place for Saturday to keep another shot at rain to the north, but the rest of us will continue to bake under the heat.
Sunday is when the front moves on, and we will start to see less hot weather and a better shot at scattered thunderstorms around the High Plains. Temperatures will only reach the 90s for the later half of the weekend.
The atmosphere makes up for this week's sweltering heat with daily showers and storms from Monday through Thursday, and highs skimming back to the 80s.
Make it a great weekend, stay cool and well hydrated!
