Weather Outlook for the Week of May 23, 2016
The slow moving storm of late has finally pushed far enough away from the area to
give us somewhat of a break in the more widespread shower activity, though some scattered showers are still expected at times. Another low
pressure system will move toward the region again by later Thursday and Friday bringing with it
another increased chance of showers & thunderstorms, breezy conditions, and cool temperatures. At this time, the
new storm does not seem to contain as much moisture and as such, the highest risk for showers look to be in the northern
zones and the North Idaho Panhandle. While I don't expect a total wash-out for the Memorial Day Weekend, it certainly
won't be without periods of cloud cover and some wet weather in places.
Other than some gusty winds, no hazardous weather is expected through Thursday. Another storm will bring
scattered showers, thunderstorms, and gusty winds back into the region again at times over the holiday weekend.
scheduled Weather Summary will be issued Sunday, May 29, 2016

to the forecast and during hazardous weather events)
