Exclusive Inland Northwest Summary Issued: Sunday * June 17, 2018 @ 5:55 AM  

(By Climatologist Bob Lutz)

 

Short-Term Forecast
The large storm over the Pacific Northwest will continue to slowly move south which will give us much improved weather today in the form of sunshine and warming temperatures.  Northeasterly winds will still be quite gusty at times as stronger high pressure off the Washington coast builds inland.  That high will lead to a dramatic warm-up as we head into the first part of the new work week, but with the storm still in close proximity, I can't rule out the chance of a shower or thunderstorm at times. 

Long-Term Forecast
 
Beyond midweek, some models continue to indicate that the meandering storm to our south may move further north again, and combine with yet another disturbance moving in from the Gulf of Alaska.  With much warmer and humid conditions in place, all this may lead to an increasing chance of thunderstorms as we head toward the end of the work week.
