Lots of great events going on today. First though, we need to talk about the weather, as a cold front with lots of monsoon moisture is going to push into the Valley on Sunday. This will increase the probability of what the US Weather service calls “excessive rainfall.” The key to remember is that probabilities are higher, but excessive rainfall is not considered a certainty.
The ground in the region is wet, and more rain on burn scars or the Wet Mountains could lead to flash flooding. So be aware and safe. Today will be hot with a high near 87 and afternoon storm chances of 50%. The cold front will bring temperatures into the 70s for four days along with the increased chances of rain.
Day of the Cowboy!
The Historic Jones Theater will be the site of history-in-the-making on Saturday, July 23. From 2 to 5 p.m. the old boards and auditorium walls will be first-time host to the First Annual National Day of the Cowboy, a celebration of western heritage in cowboy poetry and songs. Tickets are $20 and are available at the door on the day of the event. Seating is limited to 60.
Recycling Center Grand Opening!
Lots of great garage sales this weekend
