A weak disturbance will bring a slight chance for a shower or storm this afternoon and evening. That slight rain chance may linger into Saturday morning. Many of us will stay dry through Sunday afternoon. By Sunday night, some guidance is suggesting that a complex of storms will drop in on us from Kentucky. That is not unreasonable. I’ve seen that happen many times as hot, high pressure builds on the plains. I’ll monitor that closely. By Monday and Tuesday the heat begins cranking up.
