Lows this morning dropped to 48-57 with some shallow fog in places.

Highs today reached 79-85 with low humidity & mostly sunny skies.

Multiple MCSs (complexes of storms) to our west & northwest with isolated severe weather risk will be in progress Saturday night to Sunday morning, resulting in considerable convection debri here (cloudiness).  So, Sunday morning may be mostly cloudy to cloudy.  The MCSs look to ride instability gradient to our west & track south & collapse with time.

A few gravity wave- &/or MCV-induced storms are possible here (30%) Sunday morning to midday after Saturday night lows of 68-73, but you can see the bulk is away from our area. 

It will be a muggy morning to midday with dew points 70-74 with temperatures climbing to near 84 with time.

It does appear we will get a clearing Sunday afternoon & temperatures should respond to 87-92 with heat indices 95-103 as low to mid 70s dew points will be in the area.

Multiple rounds of showers & storms are likely next week.

An MCV Monday may promote storm development with the risk of a couple of severe storms.

Another MCV Tuesday may also promote development of storms with the risk of a couple of severe storms.

Finally, an MCV & surface cold front looks to bring storms Wednesday & Thursday before we dry & turn a bit less humid by Friday.

In terms of severe weather, the better deep-layer mid & upper level wind fields for severe weather will be over the Northern Plains (SLIGHT TO ENHANCED RISK parameters show up there).

Severe weather risk looks isolated or MARGINAL here a few times, but nothing widespread owing to a lack of deeper layer shear & stronger wind fields.

+1.50" of total rainfall is possible for a good chunk of the area.
