Our streak of 90+ degree days at JIA ended Sunday, so the running total was 17. An upper level low over the area is bringing more cloud cover & an earlier start to showers & storms. The upper level low will slowly drift to the west through Wed. then stretch out NE-SW near & west of the area the rest of the week. Quite a few showers & storms will develop Tue.-Wed. then become more scattered but still locally heavy Thu., Fri. & into the weekend. Temps. will start to creep up later in the week getting back well into the 90s. Overall it'll be a pretty typical mid summer pattern.
