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"
Model forecasts into the weekend remain at odds, but it does look like the best chance of showers will be on Saturday, especially
in the eastern and southern zones. Sunday should be a drier day as most of the moisture retreats to the
east; however, that could change if the track of the storm front stalls further west than expected.
continues to be better model agreement in the far extended outlook as most models are leaning toward a return
to a moist, southwesterly flow next week. This will translate into more typical fall-like weather with periods
of showers and breaks in between systems. However, breaks this time of the year don't necessarily mean a lot of sunshine
as low clouds and fog could be a problem due to a much lower sun angle. Temperatures will likely "average" above
normal due to the relatively mild southwesterly flow over the Northwest.
