Cranking Up The Temps

After the heatwave in June, July temperatures have been running a couple degrees below normal. That’s about to change, as the weather pattern begins to look more like what it’s supposed to for this time of year. Shower and thunderstorm chances will be decreasing and sunshine will be increasing, allowing temperatures to respond, getting back to above-normal levels.

Forecast Discussion

The upper level low and adjacent stationary front will be disappearing from the local weather scene today. Shower and thundershower activity today will be widely scattered around the Foothills, and there will be a good amount of sunshine. The same can be said for Tuesday and Wednesday as temperatures get on the hot side.

Thursday through Saturday will be primarily dry and rather hot. With a Bermuda High pattern taking shape, there won’t be mechanism for afternoon thunderstorms aside from normal daytime heating and terrain influences. The exception to that might be on Wednesday when a weak front approaches from the northwest (but fails to push through).

A backdoor cold front slipping down from the north by late in the weekend might be the impetus to generate a couple more widely-scattered afternoon thunderstorms.
