515 PM CDT Sat Jun 17 2017

Mostly cloudy skies were present over much of the state as of late
afternoon. The cloud cover has helped to keep temperatures cooler
than the hot streak our region has seen over the last week. Highs were
mainly in the mid 70s to upper 80s, with the warmest readings in far

radar. Chances for storms will continue this evening, mainly along and

Iowa. A few of these storms may be strong to severe.

Cooler and drier air finally returns area wide on Sunday. Afternoon
highs will be comfortable in the mid to upper 70s. Despite the cooler

afternoon hours. Some of these storms may produce small hail.

chances for storms at this time look to be Wednesday evening and
