With monsoon moisture remaining in the area thunderstorms are likely Friday afternoon and, though the chances are greatly reduced, the possibility for afternoon and evening storms is expected to continue through at least Tuesday.

While less than one-tenth inch of precipitation is expected overall, amounts could be significantly higher where thunderstorms do occur this week.

Storms Friday may be strongest near the Kansas border. Watch for cloud-to-ground lightning, wind gusts to 40 miles per hour, brief heavy rain and possibly small hail.

Friday's high temperature will be around 80, with mid- to upper 80s expected Saturday and continuing through late in the week. Overnight lows will be in the 50s.
