By: Dennis Mattinson, Weather & Atmospheric Forecaster
TUESDAY July 24, 2012
Yesterday, difluence between a low near San Francisco and a high by San Diego, kept thunderstorms active along the Sierra Crest. Today that southern ridge will strengthen bringing a slow drying trend to our district. Yes, there still might be a few isolated thunderstorms along the Crest today. For the rest of the week, by Wednesday another trough approaches the PACNW coast and this will cool our temperatures slightly into Friday. Then as it moves through temps drop to just below normal for the weekend. Monsoonal moisture should remain east of our area thru the first part of next week.
