The high pressure in the Southwest responsible for the heat wave we saw last week is centered over the Four Corners and will be strengthening again this week. As the high builds temperatures will remain hot through Wednesday with Tuesday as the hottest day of the week. The thunderstorm threat will be minimal this week as moisture will be limiting and we won’t have as much instability as we did during last week’s storms. The best potential for isolated thunderstorms will be Wednesday and Thursday afternoons in Klamath, Lake and Siskiyou counties.
A cold front associated with an upper level trough will move into the Pacific Northwest Thursday dropping temperatures closer to seasonal normals. ‘Normal’ temperatures will remain through weeks end with a bit of a warm up into the weekend.
