Weather Concerns

A continued monsoonal pattern is expected as we head into the weekend, with daily thunderstorm chances. Rain chances will be highest over mountain zones. Temperatures will be slightly above normal with afternoon min RH in the 20-30% range over the weekend.

Weak afternoon winds will lead to Fair to Good ventilation rates most days. A backdoor cold front arrives on Sunday with slightly cooler temperatures behind it. Winds will turn to the east along with increased moisture and lift promoting more numerous thunderstorm coverage Monday and Tuesday, with localized flooding the primary threat.
