MONDAY: Temps will climb back into the 80s and 90s later today, similar to what we had over the weekend. Storms and showers will continue to develop over the higher terrain of the Gila, Sacramento, Central and Northern Mountains. Today’s storms will generally push from north to south – main threats: heavy rain (causing flash flooding), damaging wind gusts, frequent lightning and hail.
A FLASH FLOOD WATCH is in effect for parts of the Northern Mountains beginning 12PM through 12AM Tuesday.
TUESDAY: As high pressure nears the state, storm chances will back off significantly with only a few isolated storms possible over the higher terrain of the Northern Mountains. Afternoon temperatures will climb just a touch with most of the state looking at 80s & 90s by the end of the day.
WEDNESDAY: High pressure will continue to keep most of the state dry and sunny with only a few isolated storms possible. High temperatures will take another 2-4 degree jump making for another afternoon in the 80s and 90s.
END OF THE WORK WEEK: Our active storm pattern will settle back in as high pressure starts to back-away from the state. Spotty to scattered storms and showers are likely with temperatures falling below average both Thursday and Friday.
