Detailed Forecast

This afternoon: Clouds will increase into the afternoon.  Storms will pop up during the afternoon over the mountains first, and while this is where the majority of the activity will stay, we cannot rule out a few scattered storms sliding across the interstate.  High temperatures will be a few degrees cooler than they were on Wednesday, but we're still expecting 80s and 90s in the lower elevations. Mountain locations will see temperatures in the upper 60s and middle 70s.

Tonight: Storms will linger into the evening, but most of the activity will settle by midnight. Lows will drop into the upper 50s and lower 60s throughout the lower elevations, with temperatures in the high country dropping to the upper 40s and lower 50s.

Extended: We are expecting a rather unsettled weather pattern this week.  Several waves will interact with the monsoonal moisture to fire off afternoon thunderstorms, with the most active time frames looking to be Thursday/Friday and again Sunday/Monday.  Temperatures will cool noticeably by the late weekend, with highs expected to be in the 70s and 80s across the lower elevations with 60s for our local mountains.
