TO BUILD NORTHWARD FROM THE SOUTHWEST. AFTERNOON TEMPERATURES WILL
CLIMB 5 TO 8 DEGREES TODAY...AND ANOTHER 3 TO 7 DEGREES ON SUNDAY.
BY SATURDAY NIGHT THE FLOW ALOFT WILL TURN TO THE SOUTH AND START TO
BRING IN MOISTURE. MID AND HIGH CLOUDS WILL SPREAD OVER MUCH OF THE
FORECAST AREA BY SUNDAY MORNING. MOISTURE IS FAIRLY LIMITED AND
INSTABILITY IS WEAK ON SUNDAY...BUT THERE IS ENOUGH TO SUPPORT A
SLIGHT CHANCE OF A THUNDERSTORM NEAR THE NEVADA BORDER. BETTER
MOISTURE AND INSTABILITY COMES NORTHWARD AFTER SUNDAY. LIGHT WINDS
THROUGH THE PERIOD.

LONG TERM...SUNDAY NIGHT THROUGH FRIDAY...LITTLE CHANGE IN THE
EXTENDED AS AN UPPER LEVEL RIDGE REMAINS OVER THE WESTERN U.S. WITH
MONSOON MOISTURE MOVING INTO THE FORECAST AREA.  MODELS CONTINUE THE
TREND OF SHOWING MORE MOISTURE AND HIGHER POPS THROUGH MOST OF THE
WEEK.  THIS INCREASED MOISTURE WILL BRING AFTERNOON AND EVENING
SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS.  TEMPERATURES WILL BE ABOUT 5 DEGREES
ABOVE NORMAL THROUGH THE WEEK.
