Forecast Discussion

Moist and unstable air Friday gave us scattered afternoon pop-up thundershowers. Somewhat drier air on Saturday will preclude most thundershower development, but an isolated late-day shower will still be possible.

Sunday will be much the same, but with somewhat more unstable air, we do expect a few extra afternoon thunderstorms scattered around the mountains.

Early next week will turn a bit wetter, as a cold front inches closer to the state. The front will sag southward through the area by Wednesday, so expect a general cooling trend during this period. With the front nearby, showers and thundershowers will be likely early-on, tapering off by midweek.
