Exclusive Summaries & Forecasts For
The Inland Northwest
By Climatologist Bob Lutz
Inland Northwest Summary Issued:
Short-Term Weather Model Agreement for the Pacific Northwest is:
(POOR= Forecast Changes are Likely * GOOD= Fair Agreement, but Changes are Possible * EXCELLENT= Changes Unlikely)
"Saving Lives through Education"
High pressure will remain the dominating feature; however, the center of the high has moved more off-shore which is allowing a slightly
cooler northwesterly flow into the area. That flow will also import a few minor disturbances which could fire up a shower or thunderstorm
by Tuesday. Even though temperatures are a bit cooler, readings will still run well above normal for early July standards.
Some subtle changes to the pattern may be on tap for the upcoming weekend, but model agreement remains poor on the details.
In short, some moisture may begin to slide into the region from the south which may increase the chance of scattered thunderstorms. As
for temperatures, some models are forecasting a cooling trend, but not all models are on board with that idea either.... Stay tuned!
Scattered thunderstorms will be possible on Tuesday, otherwise no hazardous weather is expected.
