Forecast Discussion

Upper level low pressure will remain just to our west for the next several days, keeping the threat of a few afternoon showers in the forecast for the next 36 hours. For today, clouds will build through the day, with the higher summits remaining mostly fog-free. A few afternoon showers could be possible, with any shower activity ending during the evening with the heating of the day. Overnight the higher summits will become in and out of the clouds, with temperatures falling back into the 40s. An area of low pressure associated with the upper low to our west will cross through the region tomorrow, with showers and a few strong thunderstorms possible during the afternoon.
