Hot & Mostly Dry

Sunshine prevailed again today, and it was about as hot as we’ve experienced all summer around the mountains, and it will be again on Monday. The good news is that temperatures will begin to ease down after Monday, and there will also be a better chance for scattered showers and thunderstorms for the foreseeable future, starting Tuesday afternoon. Uncomfortable humidity levels will be with us all of next week.

Forecast Discussion

High pressure is dominant throughout a large chunk of the troposphere, and this will promote lots of sunshine, hot and humid conditions, along with minimal pop-up PM thundershower chances through Monday.

A weak cold front will make a run toward the state by the middle of next week, but probably will fail to move through the mountains. However, the front’s proximity along with a weakening upper level ridge should be enough to encourage a more generous coverage of mostly afternoon and evening showers and thunderstorms.

There will be more clouds along with the scattered thundershowers, so after a hot Sunday and Monday afternoon, temperatures will begin to settle downward a bit going into midweek. Humidity levels will remain high through the period, so muggy weather will continue.
