NBC26 Storm Shield weather forecast

There’s an elevated risk for strong to severe thunderstorms during the afternoon on Thursday

The best chance for rain will be during the afternoon hours. The Storm Prediction Center has a few of our southern counties highlighted under a marginal risk for severe weather.

The Weather Service said the ridge isn't going anywhere for a while. "We encourage people to go indoors when they hear thunder".

Tomorrow night: Partly to mostly cloudy.

Sunday Night: Patchy fog after 4am. Storms over central Kansas will move east and another round of storms will develop across far western Kansas during the afternoon. Knoxville experienced an all time high of 94 degrees, so it's likely that temperatures will exceed that.

On Friday, temperatures will range from 66 to 70 degrees. Ideal weather for the Rockies game tonight with temperatures in the 60s for most of the game!

Thu: High: 78 Low: 55 Sunny.

Memorial Day Monday will be colder yet, and drier, as high temps will struggle to hit the low-70s.

But this year's Memorial Day isn't expected to break a record.

New records could be set for high temperatures in several dozen cities, from Louisiana to Virginia, setting the stage for potentially deadly conditions. Take precautions to keep yourself cool.

In Flagstaff, highs are forecast in the low 60s until Monday, when it will drop to around 52. "No strong waves or anything, that's a positive".
