Exclusive Inland Northwest Summary Issued: Saturday * August 17, 2019 @ 4:50 AM         

   (By Climatologist Bob Lutz)

 

Short-Term Forecast 
A Rex blocking high pressure ridge continues to sit over the Eastern Pacific.  As such, the forecast area will remain under an active northwesterly flow which will give us periods of cloud cover, and I still can't rule out the chance of a shower through tonight.  By Sunday, we should see decreasing clouds as the active flow is expected to shift more to the east.  Temperatures will be slightly cooler over the weekend, and it will be breezy at times as well, especially today.   

Long-Term Forecast
 
Temperatures will moderate to above normal readings going into the early portion of the new work week, but then cool again after midweek.  Precipitation (if any) looks sparse as the large blocking ridge out over the Pacific will continue to divert most storms north and east of the forecast area.  There will be a slightly better chance of showers by next weekend as a stronger system attempts to move into the Northwest. 

RADAR MENU UPDATE
Since the demise of Intellicast late last year, radar products have been poor at best with consistent load failures and inaccurate images which are not being updated in a timely manner.  After several months of monitoring, I have now chosen the three most reliable local NW products.  For what it's worth, I think the 3rd product (the Interactive Radar) is the coolest as you can change timelines, geographic image views, and zoom in on your favorite locations.   
Also under the Futurecast menu, I have added a Combined Model Forecast product.  And by request, the Lewiston ID forecasts have now been added under the "Other NW Cities" menu.           
  

Short-Term Model Agreement for the Inland Northwest is:  GOOD
Long-Term  Model Agreement for the Inland Northwest is:  GOOD
(POOR= Forecast Changes are Likely * GOOD= Fair Agreement, but Changes are Possible * EXCELLENT= Changes Unlikely)
