Well we are stuck in a very hot weather pattern. The satellite picture below and forecast map show the strong high pressure ridge will continue over the western U.S. This means for the next week we will see daytime temperatures 10 to 15 degrees above normal. Sunday and Monday we may see a few clouds as subtropical moisture gets pulled northward. This moisture will allow thunderstorms to form over the foothills and mountains. Winds will be mostly light increasing from the south and southwest in the afternoon.
Longer range forecast models are still dry but do show some cooling after the 25th.
