SYNOPSIS FROM THE SAN DIEGO OFFICE
A trough of low pressure will bring cooler weather through Saturday, but also moisture for some thunderstorms during afternoons and early evenings in the mountains and deserts. The moisture flows westward Sunday over the entire region for widespread showers and thunderstorms in all areas. Dry and seasonal weather will develop Monday and continue the rest of next week while coastal clouds increase.
FROM THE PHOENIX OFFICE
Deep southerly flow will increase moisture levels as well as shower and thunderstorm chances across the region through late Saturday. Today will likely be a very active day across southeast California and southwest Arizona with numerous storms, strong winds, and locally heavy rains are possible. At least scattered showers and storms will persist through Saturday with gradual lowering of storm chances into Sunday. Drier conditions and a warming trend will return during the early and middle parts of next week as strong high pressure builds back over the area.
