Discussion

Upper level high pressure centered over Colorado will shift to the east of us by the weekend to a position over the central Plains. This will keep the monsoonal moisture bottled up somewhat to our west until early next week when chances for showers and thunderstorms will go back up again. As the high pressure weakens early next week, the monsoonal flow will pick up once again and we’ll have the chance for showers and thunderstorms each day from Monday through Wednesday of next week.
