Fairly typical late July weather conditions are anticipated this week. Hot afternoons with highs in the upper 90's to near 100 will prevail this week. Scattered afternoon and evening thunderstorms will continue each afternoon as well. The mountains will see the most activity. Some of these storms may persists well into the night at times.

 A few of the stronger storms will be capable of producing moderate to locally heavy rainfall. This may cause some localized flash flood problems over and below the burn scar areas. An increase in thunderstorm activity is forecast for Wednesday and Thursday, as a southward moving cold front enters the area, and interacts with westward moving disturbances coming out of Texas.
