An upper-level ridge will build in across the region through the end of the week bringing near normal temperatures and dry weather to the area. Low pressure is currently forecast to retrograde to our south over the weekend drawing in enough moisture for afternoon thundershowers. Looking at mostly sunny skies out there today with a few afternoon clouds as highs top out in the lower to mid 70's, northeast winds 5-10 mph. As low pressure over New Mexico backtracks Thursday and Friday, we could experience gusty east-to southeast winds around 20mph as highs remain in the lower 70's. Low pressure will close off to our south Saturday through Monday bringing a chance of showers and thunderstorms at times, mainly during the afternoons. The flow on the north side of the low could allow a few storms to drift west of the mountains with Sunday expected to be our most active day. Highs will drop into the 60's over the weekend while overnight lows cool to the upper 30's to lower 40's. We're not expecting any snow from this system but as is typical, some storms may contain locally heavy rain, gusty winds, frequent lightning, and small hail. Pay close attention to the weather if you have any outdoor activities planned through the holiday weekend and always seek shelter indoors if a thunderstorm approaches you area. Drier weather will return by the middle of next week with slightly below normal temperatures, nice fall weather!
