A stagnant, summer weather pattern has developed over the central Plains. This pattern is mainly dry, however isolated showers and storms are possible just about every day from now until next weekend (mainly during the overnight or late afternoon/evening). Showers and storms will be spotty through the weekend and next week, however if one moves over your location it will have the potential to produce brief torrential downpours that could deliver a quick 0.50" to 1.00" of rain. The emphasis however is a drier forecast over the next 7 days with plenty of humidity. Highs will reach the mid and upper 80s each afternoon, with overnight lows in the upper 60s and low 70s.
As we look towards Labor Day Weekend, confidence is increasing that the forecast will remain dry and the south winds will begin to crank up. A breezy, hot and dry forecast for the last (unofficial) weekend of Summer. Highs will be in the low to mid 90s Friday through Labor Day.
