As has been the case as of late, the ridge of high pressure will stay firmly in place now through the weekend.  This will lead to mostly sunny to sunny skies and hot temperatures.  Highs will range from the mid 80s to near 100 today through Sunday.

A handful of isolated thunderstorms will be found later today in the mountains and along and to the south of I-80.  Thunderstorm activity is expected to increase over the weekend.  The monsoon flow of moisture from the south will begin to head our way on Saturday and Sunday leading to better chances for scattered showers and thunderstorms.
