It's Almost Summer

Happy Monday Folks! I know what you are thinking, it's so warm that it must be Summer. Technically, it's not. The first astronomical day of Summer is this Thursday, June 21st. However, I think we all can agree that meteorological Summer has already begun. Today is looking to become another warmer-than-average day, with temperatures in the low to mid 80's. Slow moving thundershowers will develop with peak heating once again. Tuesday becomes a repeat of today, with the exception that it will be a tad cooler. Wednesday becomes a turning point in this week's forecast, as the potential for showers and thundershowers are more likely from that point going forward.

Forecast Discussion

High pressure is the primary influence for our weather for the start of the week. Allowing the temperatures to remain warm and high terrain thundershowers to develop. Once Wednesday rolls around that high pressure will be replaced with a surface low and stalled front to our North. That marks the return of a more consistent afternoon and evening shower and thundershower pattern and it will continue on into the weekend.

A break in the heat will happen later this week, Thursday and Friday to be exact. That will be mainly due to the rain from Wednesday and Thursday respectively. The stalled front returns North Saturday and another front approaches from the west Sunday and Monday. Where this past weekend was dry and warm, this weekend will see better rain chances each day and cooler temperatures.
