We start off mostly sunny this morning as depicted from satellite, but could see a few high clouds pass through later in the day. Overall, another beautiful day is in store with highs climbing into the lower 80s.
We will see another pleasant but warm one Thursday, with highs in the mid to upper 80s. Winds will also increase across the area, leading to dangerous fire hazards. Please avoid burning tomorrow and follow local fire laws and guidance. In addition to the warm air Thursday, cloud cover will gradually increase through the day as a cold front approaches from the west. It will slowly push across the region, bringing a good shot of rainfall Friday into this weekend. Another late period rain maker could bring another opportunity into mid week as well. Overall, totals over the next 7 days will vary between 0.75 and 1.5" with the highest of these amounts across the Plateau.
A big change up is in store as well. Though we have been running warm this week, and will see that especially tomorrow, a big drop off follows the front Sunday. Highs will top out near what our current lows are, with highs to end the weekend in the 50s. We will begin warming back up closer to average, achieving near 70 degrees towards Tuesday of next week. Our next system then pushes through midweek, dropping temperatures back down once more.
That will do it for today, the big take aways are this: Fire danger tomorrow so don't burn, showers become increasingly likely the later half of Friday into the day Saturday, followed by much cooler air Sunday and lasting through Monday. Check out our video forecast below for more.
