Thunderstorms that do form could be severe, potentially producing one-inch hail, wind gusts to 60 mph, and heavy rain. A tornado or two cannot be ruled out for eastern Colorado, including Kiowa County.

Light winds start out of the north Saturday morning before shifting to the east in the afternoon. Except in areas where thunderstorms develop, gusts up to 20 miles per hour are predicted for the Arlington and Haswell area, while the remainder of Kiowa County can expect gusts to 15 mph.

Overnight, lows drop to around 50.

Sunday will see largely similar conditions, perhaps a few degrees cooler. For those who like hot weather, the coming week will be a treat. Highs return to the mid-80s Monday, and stay at 90 or above through at least Friday.
