Cooler Weather Stays

Cooler conditions today will help limit some shower activity but not a great deal. Storms will continue to produce moderate to heavy rain which cause problems for some areas. However do not expect convection to be as widespread and organized as yesterday so will national weather service has opted out of a flash flood watch today. We should see showers and thunderstorms diminish in a more timely fashion this evening as any lingering energy shifts away to the east by late in the day. However there is won't be much drop in moisture through tonight so a few showers may persist overnight. Temperatures will run much cooler than average today. Feeling more like fall than summer this afternoon.

We’ll have a break in the wet weather tomorrow before another piece of energy slips into the area Friday sparking up more widespread showers and thunderstorms than Thursday. Saturday a bit drier as high pressure becomes centered over the Four Corners. Diurnal thunderstorms will still form but coverage And intensity will be reduced as moisture levels sink further. Pattern begins to shift Sunday as low pressure off the west coast moves over the desert southwest during the day forcing high
pressure east and allowing moist subtropical air to again sweep
Northward.
