After noon, Thursday clouds could move in with a chance of rain showers and isolated thunderstorms near the foothills, on the mountains, but also inland.
Friday and Saturday will be mostly clear in the early part of the day while clouds will set in just after noon or throughout the early afternoon, with a chance of rain showers and isolated thunderstorms near over the mountains and inland.
