639 AM MDT THU JUN 30 2016

.DISCUSSION...
DRIER AIR HAS MOVED OVER THE AREA AS THE MAIN MOISTURE CHANNEL HAS
SHIFTED WEST OVER ARIZONA. DEWPOINTS ARE STILL UP, BUT MOISTURE
IS NOW FAIRLY SHALLOW. THIS MEANS GENERALLY FAIR WEATHER CLOUDS
WITH SUNSHINE. RH MINS WILL STRUGGLE TO DROP INTO THE TEENS TODAY.
EXPECT FEW TO NO STORMS FOR MOST AREAS TODAY...ESPECIALLY
LOWLANDS EAST OF THE CONTINENTAL DIVIDE. HIGHLANDS, ESPECIALLY THE
DIVIDE AND WEST WILL STILL SEE AT LEAST ISOLATED STORMS AFTER
DAYTIME HEATING TODAY. A BIG INCREASE IN MOISTURE FOR FRIDAY AND
SATURDAY RESULTING IN NUMEROUS SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS BOTH DAYS
AS THE MOISTURE MOVES BACK IN FROM ARIZONA WITH A PASSING TROUGH.
SUNDAY AND MONDAY ONWARD THE MOISTURE SHIFTS EAST WITH HIGH
PRESSURE BUILDING ALOFT OVER THE AREA. THIS WILL MEAN WARMER AND
DRIER TO START NEXT WEEK.
