The southeast plains will see the most noticeable cooldown.

Isolated showers and storms will develop in all of the mountains this afternoon, but with dry air in the valley and plains, storms will struggle to keep it together for the Metro. Some light rain and virga will be possible in the Metro, with the best chance for that on the east side of the city and near the mountain.
