Foiled by sprinkles

Only one outlet had the thundershowers properly forecast in Lewiston, Idaho. One little guy snuck into town in the early afternoon on Friday and brought a trace of rain, and the Weather Channel had it in their forecast. TWC’s correct precip forecast gave them the victory, as it knocked V-W out of the top spot. Blast!
Actuals: Friday – Trace of rain, High 84, Low 59
Saturday – High 83, Low 56

Grade: B

Apologies for the late night. I’ll try to get things out earlier in the future, you know, so I can go to bed.

At 1156PM, MT, Lewiston was reporting a temperature of 69 degrees with clear skies. An area of weak low pressure aloft dominated the southwest, and an exit region of that trough had itself established over the High Plains and Front Range of Montana. Lewiston found itself safely behind the wet weather, though not in the most stable of environments.
The pattern will be slow to change, as a strong jet pattern is not in the offing. The little change that does come however, will be in the form of improving weather. Flow moving across the Rockies into low pressure over Montana will keep things partly to mostly cloudy tomorrow, however expect sunnier skies and a degree or two more warmth in town for the coming days.

Weatherbug’s text definitely doesn’t match the numbers they have displayed. I wonder what’s going on there. They say, for example, high on Friday’s will be low 70s, and upper 70s on Sunday, then they put those numbers up. Odd. Here is the satellite, showing a quiet Idaho chimney
