The center of low pressure is over Idaho with the frontal boundary at the Utah border, but will be shifting ever so slowly eastward. We'll see the southerly winds increase again today and clouds will be on the increase with a chance of showers or a thunderstorm this afternoon. A little more upper level support moves into the area later tonight and tomorrow bringing more showers. The lifted index does drop to -2 tomorrow afternoon, so again, I can't rule out a chance of a thunderstorm or two. We'll gradually dry out the air mass, but another chance of a couple of showers Wednesday and into Thursday.

On this date in 1968, the Minnesota Twins' Cesar Tovar pitched a hit less inning & plays all 9 positions. Tovar was the starting pitcher, his only career pitching appearance, before making his way around the diamond at a different position each inning during the Twins' final home game of the season. Tovar scored the Twins' first ever home run, set a team record with his 33rd stolen base of the season and finished 1-for-3 with a walk. In a sign of the times, the Twins are said to have given Tovar a color television set after the game.
