Today will be active with numerous showers and storms across the western two-thirds of the state. Any storms that develop this afternoon will move slowly leading to the potential for flash flooding. Storms should start to fire a little earlier in the afternoon today and continue into the evening hours. Meanwhile, across the east only isolated storms are expected.
A drying trend begins for the holiday weekend. Expect more scattered storms for the 4th of July. However, coverage will not be as widespread as Thursday, with the higher terrain favored for the most action. The number of storms continues to dwindle through Saturday and Sunday. As storm coverage decreases, temps warm back up.
Early next week, another surge of moisture will recharge the atmosphere, helping form more storms. This happens across the west first on Monday, then shifts into central areas Tuesday and Wednesday.
