Isolated showers and weak thunderstorms will continue through the
rest of the afternoon associated with diurnal heating and aided
by upward lift along several outflow boundaries. The activity
will die off with the loss of daytime heating. Overnight tonight
high relative humidity, few clouds, and light winds will allow for
the development of patchy to areas of fog. Locations that
received rain over the past two nights are most prone to see the
fog. The fog should mix out during the mid-morning hours leading
to a rather mild and generally sunny Saturday with high temps in
the mid to upper 80s.

For Sunday and beyond the region will begin to fell the presence of
a large ridge of high pressure building overhead from the western
U.S. This means we will see the return of very warm and humid
conditions and low chances for organized precipitation. By the
middle of next week we may see the hottest temperatures so far
this year with middle to upper 90s. It is far too early to issue
any heat related headlines, but it is worth mentioning now as a
"heads up" for anyone planning outdoor activities for next week.

Will likely see some areas of reduced visibilities early Saturday
morning, possibly even some patchy fog especially in low-lying
areas. For the KC area airports, generally expecting a brief dip
into MVFR toward sunrise. Otherwise no major impacts for the next
24 to 48 hours.
