For Thursday, isolated showers and thunderstorms will occupy the late afternoon hours with temperature highs dropping away from the hotter than average streak. Storm activity will begin as early as noon over the higher elevations and storm clouds will continue to build through sunset. The surface and the lower levels of the atmosphere are still quite dry. However, we have a beneficial rain pattern in place with a high to our east and a low to our west. A “conveyor belt” of subtropical rain sources while drive in from the south allowing rain to make it through the dry layer, down to lower elevations and western locations this afternoon, tonight and possibly Friday.
