Weather Discussion & Outlook

Wow! What a great weekend, with very dry & very stable air over us the last two days. But, it looks like that will be slowly changing over the next few days. And our chances for seeing some thunderstorms around the area will also be increasing as we go thru the end of the week. There is not going to be any major changes to the weather pattern, but a slight increase in upper level moisture &a little bit more unstable atmosphere will pop-up a few clouds here & there in the afternoons. By Thursday we’ll see a better chance for some isolated thunderstorm activity around JH. Broad Ridge of High pressure covers most of the Western U.S. all week, with some moisture being rotated northward towards Wyoming from the Desert Southwest as the week goes on. That is what increase our T-storm chances. A Low pressure center off the BC Coast will create a stronger SW flow over us later Saturday & Sunday. That Trof shifts inland a little by Monday. This Trof will provide enough moisture & instability for some thunderstorms during the afternoon & evening hours throughout the 4th of July Weekend.
