No big pre-amble today, but let’s take a look at how it’s going along the Idaho/Washington border today. At least they’ll be much warmer than we are here at VicWX HQ!
At 905pm PST, the temperature in Lewiston, ID was 41 degrees under overcast skies. Strong arctic high pressure is once again taking a stranglehold on the Central US. This is causing a couple areas of low pressure found over the Northern Rockies to get held up and pushed southeastward along the spine of the Rockies over the next 24-36 hours. Scattered rain shower (and higher elevation snows) are found throughout the region and will continue to affect the area throughout the day on Friday. Luckily, most of this activity will shift southeastward by the time Saturday rolls around and while the day will still be cloudy, no shower activity is anticipated. Temperatures look to remain fairly steady as well, so while Lewiston enjoys their balmy upper 40s, we get to have fun with -20 wind chills here at HQ. Oh well.
