This past weekend, the models were hinting that a trough could dig far enough south to brush Utah with some clouds, showers, and cooler temperatures. It looks like this trough will dig off the Pacific Coast before lifting into Canada, far north of us. Instead, we will have high pressure to our east that will allow for a continued chance of afternoon/evening thunderstorms. The air is gradually drying after Ivo, so thunderstorms will be less and less frequent through at least Saturday. A reinforcing surge of moisture is forecasted to move into the area on Labor Day giving the entire state a better chance for convection. This also means temps will still be warm and summer-like (80s and 90s).
No imminent signs of change quite yet, but this weekend marks the start of meteorological Autumn, so it won’t be long before cooler temps and fall-like weather is knocking on the door. It might be too early to think snow! But you can at least channel your thoughts toward an end to this oppressive heat.
