Short-Term Weather Outlook for the week of June 27, 2016
The strong high pressure ridge in the Desert Southwest will be
the dominating influence over the Inland Northwest this week. Unlike last week, high temperatures will average
well above normal, with little if any precipitation. The ridge will flatten at times and allow for breezy conditions as weak
systems move through its northern periphery. Isolated thunderstorms are also possible with each wave, but for the most
part, much of the region stands a better chance of staying dry throughout the week.
Long-Term Extended Forecast
The latest models are trending even cooler for the upcoming holiday weekend as that 4-Corners high
pressure ridge in the Southwest part of the U.S. gets suppressed to our south. Breezy conditions will also accompany
the change in temperature, and I'm still hanging on to at least a chance of a scattered shower or thunderstorm into early next
week. Overall, it still looks like a rather pleasant weather pattern for the 4th of July holiday this year!
Boating Weather Forecast
No widespread hazardous weather is expected.
