The weekend will not be a washout, but a few scattered showers and storms are possible on both days. Saturday has a higher storm chance compared to Sunday.

It still feels humid as monsoon moisture stays with us. Some thunderstorms are popping up over the mountains early Friday afternoon. We have the chance for a few of these storms to drift off the mountains and into the valley through the evening. Any storms are looking isolated.

Saturday brings scattered showers during the afternoon and evening. Most of the storms on Sunday stay over the mountains with only a slight chance in the valley. Forecast high temperatures hold in the upper 90s and low 100s.

Drier air works into the area on Monday and Tuesday, keeping storm chances confined to our local mountains. As we dry out, temperatures will be climbing back into the 100s. The break will be brief, increasing storm chances return to the forecast Wednesday and Thursday.
