Sunday August 15, 2021 Forecast First


Air Quality Health Advisory has been lifted.

There will still be lingering haze and the respiratory effects from this prolonged exposure to the heavy smoke days will still linger for some people. Aside from the light haze, the weekend looks mostly clear to start and partly cloudy to finish. The mostly clear nights and mornings will allow decent viewing of the Persid Meteor shower after midnight. The partly cloudy afternoons will be due to the mountain storms developing late in the day. Pop up afternoon thunderstorms will form over the Divide and and San Juans with very little associated threats. Most areas will remain dry, a few will get gusty near these storms and everyone will remain hot. Hotter than average temperatures remain in place through the middle of next week.

The next round of widespread rain showers will appear during the middle and late period of next week. Our (current weather maker) high pressure system will get nudged to the south after this weekend and open the door to a lot more subtropical influenced storms. The kicker will be a large area of low pressure developing off the Pacific Northwest and moving slowly east/south through next week. This low will aid in a pattern change that should include lowered temperatures, heavy rainfall and flooding hazards.
