Temperatures will drop to the middle 60s by daybreak.

Main threats would be heavy rain, gusty winds and small hail. Temperatures for the day will climb into the middle 80s.

Sunday: Mostly cloudy skies, still warm and muggy. A front just to our south may bring a few more showers and storms. Cities and towns south of I-70 are in the best positions to see storms. Severe threat is low, but something to be monitored if the front is not as far south as originally forecast. Temperatures will rise into the lower 80s.

Monday: Showers and storms return. Warm and muggy again, with highs in the lower 80s.
