Unsettled MON-TUE; Drier WED-THU

The next two days will feature our best opportunity for showers and thunderstorms this work week. Once we get past Tuesday, we’ve got a nice air mass change that will take down humidity levels Wednesday into Friday. It looks like some wet weather will make a return as we start next weekend.

Forecast Discussion

The main player in our weather over the next 48-hours will be a cold front that will push through the mountains by early Wednesday. Ahead of the front, we will remain in a very warm, humid and somewhat unstable air mass, conducive to the development of scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms, focused primarily on the PM-hours.

The front will settle south of the area for Wednesday and Thursday, promoting a nice air mass change and a couple of dry days.

On Friday, new energy approaching upstream will nudge the stationary front to our south and turn it into a warm front on Friday. The front will lift north of us on Saturday as low-pressure passes by well to our north. That will put us back into a scattered shower and thundershower regime just in time for the weekend.
