  • Cool nights through Friday morning
  • Muggy air returns by the weekend
  • Better rain chances next week


Dry weather and lower humidity will bring overnight temperatures to the low/mid 50s under clear skies.


The lower humidity and cooler temperatures will stick around through Thursday with highs in the upper 70s and a few 80s. We’ll see lots of sunshine mixed with the summertime cumulus clouds.


The humidity makes a return starting Friday and will linger into the weekend. Temperatures also warm to the mid 80s. Any rain chances remain very limited through Friday with only a few stray showers Saturday and Sunday. Storm coverage should be minimal and not enough to cause you to cancel plans. Just check the radar from time-to-time.

Very comfortable air returns Wednesday & Thursday.

We’ll continue to see lots of sunshine Friday, but you’ll notice a few more clouds streaming through the area. We can’t totally rule out a stray thunderstorms, but most will stay dry. Highs on Friday climb into the mid 80s.


A few showers and storms return for the upcoming weekend. Highs Saturday and Sunday will hold in the mid 80s. Humidity will gradually be on the increase as well as winds turn back to the south.

Temperatures warm well into the 80s by the weekend.

A more active and humid weather pattern will kick off this weekend and carry into next week. No day looks like a wash-out, but we will return to the days of daily afternoon showers and storms. It appears the best chance of rain will be in the western mountains thanks to the additional lift the mountains provide to the air.

Pop up afternoon showers and storms return to the forecast into next week.
