​​​​​Thunderstorm and shower chance for Tuesday

For Monday evening, warm with a chance of isolated thunderstorms. East wind 10 to 15 MPH, gusts as high as 25 mph.

A batch of monsoonal moisture will wrap in for late Monday and carry into Tuesday for our region. An area of low pressure over California will shift closer into Idaho. This low, will usher in southern moisture with some cloud cover and scattered storms. Look for isolated thunderstorms for Monday evening, mostly into the higher elevations and foothills. We'll look for partly to mostly cloudy skies throughout this Tuesday with scattered showers and thunderstorms. South winds at 10 to 15 mph, with gusts as high as 25 mph. High pressure works back in for Wednesday and Thursday, with just a few mountain and foothill thunderstorms.
