Saturday finds the warm air shooting back in from the south. This will be introduced by additional showers and thunderstorms, with locally heavy rain. With a saturated ground, it won’t take much to cause additional high water problems.
Saturday temps soar from south to north, and highs could reach the upper 60s to low 70s in some areas. Record highs will be possible, with some afternoon sun.
