Showers For The Solstice

It’s officially the first day of summer. It’s certainly felt like it after a hot week around the Foothills. Today won’t be quite as hot as we have more clouds and a healthy coverage of PM showers and thunderstorms. Expect more of the same on Friday with PM showers and thunderstorms likely. The weekend will be hotter again with reduced coverage of rainfall.

Forecast Discussion

The official start of summer is 6:07AM EDT.

The ridge of high pressure that has dominated our weather this week is showing signs of decay. This weakening will allow a cold front to approach, but not move through. The end result will be more clouds, somewhat cooler temperatures, and the increased risk for showers and thunderstorms today through Friday.

Weekend weather will feature more sunshine and a return to rather hot temperatures. PM showers and thunderstorms will be more isolated in nature on Saturday,.

Another cold front will arrive on Monday, and this one stands a better chance at actually pushing through the area. It will bring more scattered showers and thunderstorms on Monday, then allow a drier air mass to filter into the state by the middle of next week. This, of course, assumes that the front will have enough impetus to make a clean passage.e.
