Tuesday – 6 Jul 2021 – 6:30pm
At Stevens Field the high today was 83 and the low this morning was 49. Today’s peak wind was 29mph. Nearly 0.20” of rain fell yesterday in the uptown area. Raindrops have been few and far between for most of the county today.
The upper level high pressure will set up over the Great Basin which will put us under a more northerly, more dry, and a more stable flow. We’ll see less afternoon shower and thunderstorm activity tomorrow, a slight increase Thursday as a weak trough tries to move through, and then very little activity this weekend.
Wednesday through Friday… Afternoon showers and thunderstorms will be few and far between. Thursday will be the most active but doesn’t look too impressive. Let’s hope for a few “slow movers” to give us a soaking!
Highs will be lower 80s to lower 90s and lows will be lower 40s to lower 50s. Friday will be the warmest day of the week with temps near the top of those ranges.
Afternoon winds will peak less than 20mph, though isolated convective gusts to 40mph are possible near showers and thunderstorms.
Saturday and Sunday… Saturday looks dry with just a few cumulus clouds developing over the mountains. On Sunday one or two of those cumulus clouds could grow into a shower or thunderstorm over the mountains.
Highs will be lower 80s to lower 90s and lows will be lower 40s to lower 50s. Saturday will be warm with temps near the top of those ranges.
