Cool for a few more days

Chief Meteorologist Shane Smith has a look at a forecast the remains cool for into the middle of the week.

 We saw a record cold start to the day across the mountains on this Tuesday.  Temperatures dropped into the mid 50s, and we tied the record at 55 at the NWS office in Jackson.  Temperatures will drop even lower as we head into tonight.  Lows will drop to near 50 and some of the sheltered valleys may go into the 40s.  The GFS model looks very cool heading into the morning.

Temperatures will start to warm tomorrow afternoon though.  We will head back to the upper 70s.  Lower 80s will be with us on Thursday, and Friday may feature a few mid 80s.

 

However with the warmer air comes a few chances of showers and storms.  Those will be with us on Friday and Saturday.  It's doesn't look like a ton, but it will be enough to keep the heat from climbing back to near average levels.

 

However by the middle of next week those highs should return to near normal.  Hard to believe we will be starting early August which is typically our hottest part of the year in the lower 80s.

 

Until next time, take care!
