The showers are back over the area for the rest of this evening, scattered in nature and drying up as the sun starts to go down. Lows for the valley will be in the upper 40s and low 50s tonight into early Thursday.
While temperatures are still staying below average, tomorrow is likely the "pick of the week." Thursday looks to be mainly dry for valley locations, with highs in the upper 60s to near 70, under partly cloudy skies. Mountain locations will still likely see scattered showers and storms - but most, if not all, of this action will stay in the higher elevations for Thursday. So, if you've been waiting to mow the lawn or get out in the garden, tomorrow is the best day to do it before more showers and storms move in for the holiday weekend.
Another round of unsettled weather will drop in from the NW Friday afternoon/evening, bringing showers and thunderstorms across the Gem State. Highs will be in the upper 60s to near 70 through the weekend.
Saturday may be the wettest and coolest day of the weekend, with showers scattered throughout the day. Sunday and Monday will feature peeks of sun, but afternoon showers and storms.
We'll finally turn the page on this wet and cool pattern on Tuesday. More sunshine returns to the area, and we should get a chance to dry out. Highs will also be on the rise, into the mid and upper 70s by the middle of next week.
