Highs for Sunday

For Sunday, the heat will be on again with highs back into the upper 90s. The only difference is we are awaiting a cold front. Currently, a cold front is producing showers and thunderstorms over the Plains. The front will spark some rain and thunderstorms for the region. I am not expecting anything severe. The rain chances will linger for Sunday night and Monday. Monday’s high will only rise into the middle 80s. Rainfall totals will average between 1-2 inches of rain.
