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"
A strong ridge of high pressure will build in the wake of our recent storm. Temperatures will be on the rise, and showers will
be on the decrease from west to east through early Tuesday.
Models remain in generally good agreement
that the weekend storm will continue to slide east allowing another strong ridge of high pressure to become firmly
established over the Northwest. The models are still in a bit of disagreement as to where any thunderstorm activity
may develop by late in the week as monsoonal moisture works its way northward. Right now, the models are leaning toward
most of the moisture staying just south of our forecast area at least through early in the weekend.
Improving conditions are likely with no hazardous weather expected for the rest of the work week.
