Friday's temperatures across the west will be in the upper 70s to low 80s, with the Grand Junction area seeing upper 80s. Storms should remain across western Kansas and some may be strong to severe. Main threats will be damaging winds (60+ mph) and hail (quarter size or larger). Storms should diminish overnight.
Sunday afternoon will be 10 to 15 degrees below normal in the low 80s under partly to mostly cloudy skies.

After a week of daily showers and storms several communities across Acadiana could finally dodge the rain Sunday and remain dry as a weak high pressure will slide over the northern Gulf just south of Louisiana.
