Friday, August 1 Forecast Discussion

Clouds have been with us throughout the first day of August with a few showers in western parts of the viewing area. Showers are continuing to work eastward, so a shower or two is possible this evening into the overnight. The rain will fall apart overnight thanks to a lack of support of rain showers above the surface.

We will see our best chance of rain over the next seven days on Saturday as a system to our southwest is close enough in proximity to throw moisture our way and create rain showers. A washout is not expected, but we will see scattered showers throughout the day. Clouds and rain will keep temperatures in the middle 80s.

Clouds start to break a bit on Sunday and Monday which will turn our rain chances to only isolated showers. High pressure to our west starts to infiltrate the area on Tuesday, reducing rain chances across the board and turning skies partly cloudy. With the return of high pressure, temperatures will also start to warm back to seasonal averages. Highs should reach 90 on Monday and continue to warm into the lower and middle 90s by the end of next week.

For now, the Ralph Morgan Rodeo looks very August-like with temperatures in the 90s and a pop-up afternoon storm possible.
