Extended outlook forecast:
I am seeing increasing confidence in afternoon thunderstorm chances across the region on Saturday. Storms will pop up in the mountains and then drift into the plains. Lightning and small hail would be the main threats to these storms. Temperatures will still be very warm, similar to Friday's highs, or slightly cooler.

Sunday will be sunny with warm temperatures. Highs will be about 10 degrees above average on Sunday to the 70s and 80s.
