The showers -- mostly just rain, very little lightning has occurred - are moving slowly east and will grow into stronger storms by the evening for those on the far eastern Plains.
Saturday and Sunday will be similar days. Following this rain, the sky clears Saturday morning, although there will still be smoky skies in many places.
Sunshine and only isolated storms in the afternoon and evening will allow temperatures to sit in the lower and middle 90s for the weekend.
In the mountains, high temperatures will be in the 70s and 80s with isolated storms Saturday.
Early next week, we have another possible cool-down with some rain and thunder. Monday and Tuesday likely will cool into the 80s, when we will have the next best chance for thunderstorms.
