Short-Term Weather Outlook
Temperature readings will warm through
the weekend as high pressure continues to strengthen over the Northwest. Other than periods of high clouds
and breezy conditions at times, the weather is expected to remain warm and dry into at least early next week.
Considerable model uncertainty continues into the extended outlook as numerous systems move both north and south of our region.
These systems will likely result in waves of cooler air moving over the forecast area at times next week. We will also
be watching moisture to our south, which may get caught up in the prevailing southwesterly flow. If this happens,
it could bring with it an increasing chance of thunderstorms into parts of the Inland Northwest as the week progresses.
