A trough just to our north is ushering in southern monsoonal flow, giving our deserts and mountains a slight chance for rain and thunderstorms. Although unlikely, there could be isolated showers that make its way towards our coast and valleys. Thunderstorms could be associated with downpours at times, so it’s important to use caution while traveling along the passes and high desert elevations.
On Thursday, drier air will move in from the west, but afternoon thunderstorms are still possible over the mountains.
We remain in this warming trend with not a lot of fluctuation this week, with the heat peaking tomorrow in many spots. As we encounter warm weather, it’s important to avoid outdoor activities for yourself and those vulnerable around you. Friday and Saturday will be dry and warm. Weak monsoonal flow may return early next week.
