Discussion...
warmer temperatures expected today with southerly low level flow
returning. After a brief cool down temperatures in central and southeast
sections will warm back into the middle/upper 90s with readings at or above
the century mark in the west. Temperatures on Saturday may be a few
degrees warmer with veering low level flow ahead of approaching front.
Although heat index values will be marginal...will continue with
heat advisory as is for today and extend it into Saturday with the hot
temperatures expected to continue.

Weak front will begin to push into the region Saturday night and
continue slowly southward on Sunday. Will continue with low probability of precipitation
in that time frame as front pushes in. Precipitation chances will spread
south into Monday as frontal boundary continues southward. Precipitation
chances will continue through the week with northwesterly upper flow
pattern developing. Best chances expected around midweek as short wave
trough drops southeastward from the central rockies.
