The slow warming trend will commence this weekend for much of the region. Look for sunny skies Saturday with a high of 63. There may be a few high thin clouds that move in toward the end of the day. By Sunday, a fast moving front will bring more clouds and a chance of mountain showers with highs in the mid 60’s. The big story is that a strong high pressure will build into Idaho next week. This will give us lots of sun and drive our temps into the low 80’s by the end of the week. This warming trend could stick around for a while. stay tuned.
