First Alert: A cool evening with mostly clear skies

(KFVS) -

The Heartland is in for a taste of summer today!

Bryan McCormick said a strong high pressure ridge is coming from our south, so expect near-record highs today with breezy conditions ahead of a cold front.

Today's highs will be in the 80s and 90s. Tonight will be mostly clear and cool.

It will be a comfortable evening with lows near 60

A southwest breeze will keep the temperature from dropping too much this evening, despite a cold front approaching from the west.

Showers are likely early on Sunday but rainfall won't amount to much. Cooler weather can be expected from Sunday through next week.

Highs on Sunday will be in the 60s.
