More Moisture, Better Rain Chances

With such a warm start to the day i have went ahead and bumped up our afternoon highs around the area. Monsoon moisture continues to push northward today which has boosted our chances for rain this morning and again in the afternoon and evening. Isolated storms will be able to drop heavy rains but the threat of flash flooding isn't really a concern.

Storms that develop will be moving at a fairly good clip so expect gusty outflow winds and also lightning active storms. The higher terrain is prone to more significant rainfall through the day but lower valleys will have their chance as well.

A strong pacific low is moving to the north of us tonight and tomorrow which will bring a pulse of energy through the area late this evening allowing for a few overnight showers and storms. Our winds will shift to the west late today which will bring in somewhat drier air but showers are still likely into Friday evening. This pattern will continue into next week with afternoon temperatures not fluctuating all that much.
