We will have a bright, sunny end to our work week as an upper level ridge builds into the great basin. This will put us under a dry, northwest wind today. Showers won't be completely obsolete today as we will still have enough moisture to produce a few isolated showers and storms. But the greatest chance for rain will be over the northern and central mountains. With the added sunshine our afternoon highs will climb about 5-7 degrees across the western slope.
Our next weather system will move in from the north as we head into the weekend. Southwest winds return tomorrow pushing our temperatures back into the 80's and 90's. Sunday we are looking at a little bit of a cool down as some chilly air moves in from the north. Our daytime temperatures will be dropping back down into the 70's and 80's. Partly cloudy skies will be present throughout the weekend.
High pressure will build back in by Monday leading to a drier atmosphere and the return of sunny, warm weather. No major changes coming from Monday through Thursday.
