Good morning!

Most of the region is kicking off this Friday under clear skies. High pressure will nudge its way northward over the Pacific Northwest throughout the next couple of days. This system, combined with sunny skies, will warm temperatures into the upper 80s and low 90s. Saturday should be the warmest day of the next 5 days with many cities in the inland valleys hitting/exceeding 90 degrees. Luckily, overnight lows will remain in the 50s and low 60s.

Don’t expect to see many changes to our overall temperature forecast. Our upper level pattern isn’t shifting a whole lot. We’ll see highs cool down slightly between Sunday and Tuesday, generally dropping back into the mid to upper 80s. During this time frame, the ridge of high pressure will be centered over the Intermountain West and the high Plains. Southwest flow is expected to prevail between early to midweek, which may bring a chance for isolated thunderstorms (mainly Cascades and points to the east). This could translate to more filtered sunshine west of the Cascades due to mid to high elevation clouds drifting in. Chances for storms seem low at this time, but it’s something to monitor.

Our computer models are hinting at another warm up toward the end of the workweek, with highs potentially returning to the 90s. Stay tuned for more updates on that.

Have a great Friday!
