There will be very little change to the overall weather pattern today as a ridge of high pressure centered over the Great Basin will continue to bring very hot and dry conditions to much of the western U.S. It will also be breezy across the Northwest quarter of the Nation ahead of a dry cold front that will push southeast tonight and Saturday. Isolated to scattered thunderstorms will develop in northern California and the Great Basin in response to high based moisture and instability. Showers and thunderstorms with wetting rain are expected a little further east in the central Rockies. East of the Rockies, scattered showers and thunderstorms will form along a stationary frontal boundary from the Gulf Coast to the Mid-Atlantic. Alaska will see the onset of a slight warming and drying trend, with isolated thunderstorms.
