Today will be windy, cooler, and mostly sunny. Highs will be in the low 60s, which is average for this part of April. The humidity will be very low this afternoon and evening, and with winds between 20 and 45 mph, the fire danger will be very high. Avoid any outdoor burning or anything that could start a fire, because it could quickly spread out of control.

The wind lightens up tonight, and we cool off into the upper 30s for Friday morning.

Friday looks really nice! The wind will be a lot lighter, and it will be warmer, near 70 degrees.

Summer heat moves in over the weekend with near-record high temperatures. Saturday will be mostly sunny and breezy with highs in the mid 80s. Sunday will also be mostly sunny as we push into the upper 80s with less wind.

The heat continues Monday with upper 80s, but it will start to get breezy again. In the afternoon, we'll start dodging a few spotty storms, with more storms moving in during the evening and night. Some of these storms could be strong to severe. As we go through the weekend, we'll get a better idea of how likely severe storms will be and where that threat is most likely.

Rain and storms will continue at times Tuesday, cooling us off into the low 70s for the afternoon. We likely dry out Tuesday night.

Wednesday will be in the upper 60s with a mix of sun and clouds, but another system could throw a few spotty showers at us in the second half of the day.
