Forecast for August 18th, 2018


Showers and thunderstorms are possible well into the evening. Some of the storms could be slow-moving, heavy rain makers. There is a very slight chance for some severe storms with damaging wind in the Foothills.

Sunday brings another round of scattered, mainly afternoon rain and storms with some more downpours. Highs will be a degree or two below normal, in the lower 80's.

Rain and storm chances increase on Monday and Tuesday, ahead of an approaching cold front. Drier, cooler air arrives later in the week, with very low rain chances through Saturday.
