Discussion...
scattered showers and thunderstorms are expected today and tonight
before tapering off Saturday as a middle-level shortwave slowly moves
across the plains. There is the potential for a few of these storms
to become strong to marginally severe with strong gusty winds and
hail the concern.

The chances of showers and thunderstorms return to the forecast Monday
into Wednesday across roughly the northern half of the forecast area
as a series of middle-level shortwaves sweep across the plains and a
frontal boundary drops to near the Kansas/Oklahoma border before
stalling out.

Drier weather returns late in the week as high pressure prevails
at the surface and aloft.

After seasonably cool temperatures today...readings will rebound
over the Holiday weekend and into next week with at or above
normal temperatures expected.
