Weather Discussion & Outlook

Some scattered clouds around today coming over NW WY in a SW flow today. A Low pressure system on the Pacific Northwest & BC Coast today, will move across southern Canada Thursday & Friday. High pressure remains in place to the south of us over the 4-Corners Region. As that Low is going by, it brings a little hint of moisture & cooler air aloft over us tonight, that cooler air collides with the very warm air over us today, and we might see a passing shower or t-shower overnight. Otherwise, most of the precip & T-storms stay well to the North & NW of JH. It will be breezy in the valley & windy at ridgetop levels this afternoon and thru Friday. Strongest winds Thursday afternoon thru Friday afternoon. Wind decreases Saturday after that Low passes by and moves east over Saskatchewan. We will also see cooler temps here Thursday thru Saturday. The Ridge of High pressure over the 4-Corners will build back north thru the Rockies & Great Basin Sunday, bringing warm temps back up over us Sunday and thru next week. Monsoon moisture creeps north around the west side of that Ridge on Monday, and we’ll have a possibility of some thunderstorms here most days next week.
