Today is certainly an upgrade from what we had yesterday. Clouds will be stubborn but should break for a slightly brighter sky to end the day. We are looking to be rain-free outside of a spotty shower/sprinkle mainly in the high country. Highs will still be 10° below average in the 70's but that is better than the 60's we had yesterday afternoon.

Upper 70's are the next stop tomorrow afternoon under mostly cloudy skies with another similar pop-up shower chance like today. Likely any rain will again be around the Mountains but if it does rain it shouldn't last long.

Temps on the rise to the low 80's on Tuesday and even to around 90° again on Wednesday. Tuesday will have a better chance for rain as we watch an approaching front and Wednesday has the best chance for storms on the 7-day forecast. We will be near normal to above average to end the month of August next weekend.

TRACKING THE TROPICS: Tropical Storm Dorian

As of right now Dorian is chugging along around 14 mph and will impact Barbados. Right now there is a Tropical Storm Warning is in place until Monday. Once Dorian crosses the Lesser Antilles it could briefly turn into a Hurricane but with less favorable conditions eventual landfall around the Dominican Republic, it will quickly drop below tropical storm strength by Friday. After that, only time will tell that tale.

This does not look to affect the United States and is still just a disturbance. It will have the chance to be upgraded to a Tropical Depression within the next couple days and even turn into Tropical Storm Erin within 5 days. Aircraft is going to investigate the storm later today so we will have more information later today. A stationary front that cooled us off this weekend is helping push this system away from us which of course is great news.
