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 storm system in the Gulf of Alaska will continue to send bands of moisture over the Inland Northwest
with one band arriving late Friday, and another late Saturday. In between systems, we'll see late night and early
morning fog, but will also enjoy some partial clearing at times as well. With the warm southerly flow, temperatures should
moderate a tad into the early part of the weekend.
Model agreement is still trending toward
a continuation of wet weather with more storms moving through the Northwest next week. This will give us
a renewed chance of valley rain and high mountains snow, along with gusty winds at times. With the active southwesterly
flow, temperatures are expected to remain near normal through the period.
