The weather story for this week through the weekend will be the heat. High pressure builds over the region with highs warming into the 80s on the lake. Expecting sunny skies with a few afternoon clouds building each afternoon Thursday-Sunday, but thunderstorm chances look to be pretty slim. We will see the typical afternoon Zephyr winds from the southwest. The breezes look lighter through Saturday with afternoon gusts only up to 20 mph.
Starting Monday, we have a trough pushing into the West Coast with some cooler air and gustier afternoon winds. The sunny skies continue but highs will only be in the 70s, with next Wednesday being the coolest day where we may top out around 70 degrees. The afternoon southwest winds could gust up to 30+ mph Monday – Wednesday. That will likely bring rougher waters to the lake away from the West Shore during the afternoons so be careful if boating.
The mornings and areas along the western shores are usually the calmest during the summer. It looks like we will warm up again later next week, but we will cover that in next week’s lake forecast.
