Starting today, the dew point temperature is going to fall. By this weekend, our dew point temperature will be in the 20s. This is well below the damp 50+ dew point temperatures we need for good thunderstorm activity.  But, the moisture should build back into the region by early next week.

Below are the dew point outlooks for Friday night and midday Monday. Notice on Friday night that white covers Northern Arizona indicating dew points at or below 25 degrees F. By midday Monday, a knuckle of moist air moves into Northern Arizona bring the dewpoints back to the mid 40s. Hopefully, by Wednesday of next week, we may see a return of thunderstorm activity.
