"Saving Lives through Education"
Short-Term Weather Outlook
A large high pressure ridge will
continue to build over the region during the Memorial Day Weekend. Unlike the previous high pressure systems,
this particular ridge still looks to be rather potent which should serve to keep any significant precipitation away from the
Northwest for an extended period. Temperatures will also moderate, and should once again rise to above normal levels
into at least early next week.
Many models suggest that the ridge may begin to break down by the
middle of next week. If this comes to fruition, then expect an increased chance of showers and thunderstorms once
again, along with temperatures that would cool back closer to seasonal normals. In fact, some models are hinting at the potential
for strong thunderstorms on Thursday! Stay tuned...
