As high pressure builds into the Intermountain West late this week, temperatures across the region will respond by warming significantly. Highs Friday through Sunday will warm into the 80s and 90s across the Plains. While it will be windy at times this weekend, most areas are looking dry through Memorial Day, with only a small chance of an isolated afternoon shower or thunderstorm.
