Heat Gradually Easing Off

Hot weather continues today and Saturday around the Foothills, but it will be slowly easing off thereafter. Widely-separated showers and thunderstorms will re-develop during the afternoon and end later this evening. Saturday will feature plenty of sunshine and the weather should be dry but still on the hot side. Sunday looks much the same, with temperatures maybe a couple degrees cooler and just an isolated late-day thundershower around. A better opportunity for rainfall arrives for Monday.

Forecast Discussion

A weak backdoor cold front will be slipping southward through the state later this afternoon. It will generate hit-or-miss showers and thunderstorms. The front will settle south of the area over the weekend and dissipate. We’ll enjoy plenty of sunshine and above normal temperatures this weekend, with Saturday a little hotter than Sunday. The opportunity for a cooling shower or thundershower will be quite small.

Next week, another diffuse frontal boundary will be approaching from the west. Monday looks like our best coverage day for showers in thunderstorms in a week or more, followed by diminishing chances for Tuesday and Wednesday.

Scattered PM showers and thunderstorms may make a return toward next Thursday or Friday once again.
