1027 PM PDT sun may 28 2017

Synopsis...
high pressure continues over the inland northwest through Tuesday
with unseasonably warm temperatures. There is a small chance of
thunderstorms in the higher elevations, otherwise expect dry
weather. This warm spell will contribute to rises on rivers from
the Cascades into north Idaho. A cold front arrives Tuesday night
with a better chance of showers and thunderstorms. This will be
followed by cooler and unsettled weather for Wednesday into the
rest of the week.

Discussion...
showers and thunderstorms are waning quickly this evening. I have
updated the forecast to remove showers with clear skies for the
rest of tonight. /Svh
