With a few showers in our southern & eastern counties AM to early PM (with lots of clouds & some sun), a nice breeze & muggy air by evening, highs today ran 79-85.  I am thinking the Grissom ARB 87-degree high may be an error with that sensor.  It seems to be reading too high & higher than even you would get with dry soil.

We have & continue to have a few spotty storms around this evening, mainly in the northwest half of the viewing area.

There has even been some isolated severe weather in central Illinois with wind & hail.

A few isolated storms are still possible into the overnight with the risk of an isolated severe storm (wind, hail).

Meanwhile a large complex of heavy, severe storms will develop in northern Kansas & Missouri & move eastward.

This will pass through the viewing area Saturday morning.  An isolated severe gust or two is possible as it passes.  It will all pull away by early afternoon.

The clouds may thin some after that & a few isolated to spotty storms may pop in the late afternoon-evening with highs Saturday in the 79-85 range (with high dew points near 70 to the lower 70s).

An isolated storm or two is possible Saturday night, then we will watch complex of storms migrating eastward from Illinois that may impact the area Sunday morning.

Isolated severe storm or two is possible (wind).

Those storms depart, followed by lulling & thinning of the clouds with a heat-up into the 80s to perhaps 90 with muggy dew points in the 70s.

A few storms may re-develop Sunday late afternoon-evening.  An isolated severe storm is possible.

A few storms are possible Monday with 89-94 with 70s dew points & heat indices 96-105. 

Multiple complexes of storms are possible Tuesday-Wednesday with some severe weather & locally-heavy rainfall possible.

Thursday actually looks a bit cooler & less humid as the hot upper ridge contracts a bit with upper trough swinging through New England & cold front slips southward.

It looks to spring back northward quickly Friday, bathing us in heat, humidity & the potential of some storms riding along it into the area along & just south of it.

It looks warmer & wetter than normal overall to around August 29-30.

After that, it looks cooler than normal with normal rainfall overall in early September.
