Weather Discussion & Outlook

A Ridge of High pressure covers much of the western US, bringing us some pretty nice weather today & Saturday, the 4th of July, with little to no threat of thunderstorms here the next two days. Most of the activity will be to the south of us over the 4-Corners Region & some isolated activity along & east of the Divide in Wyoming. Clouds increase over eastern ID & western WY later Saturday, and there will be a chance of a shower overnight & early Sunday. More moisture is rotated up over us from the Desert Southwest monsoon during the day Sunday, helped by a Low pressure system that will be passing by to the north of us in Montana/Southern Canada. Expect showers & T-storms into Sunday afternoon, drying out Sunday night behind that passing weather system. Then some afternoon showers/T-storms for Monday. A Low pressure system will park along the California Coast on Monday, sending pulses of moisture inland in a West to SW flow all of next week, bring a chance of mainly p.m. T-storms each day Tues.-Fri.
