Could we go the rest of the week without rain?
The state of Idaho is stuck between high pressure to the south and low pressure to the west. The combination flow around both of these systems will keep us in a mild southwest flow. Just think where that air is coming from? It’s origin is from the southern regions and that means it going to be warm. In fact, we’re supposed to be in the upper 70’s this time of the year. But, with this pattern, we’re going to be about 10 degrees warmer than normal.
Not only will it be warm, but it appears that we are going to be dry! The next potential for “measurable” rain will likely hold off until late Saturday when a weak front moves in from the west. Climatologically speaking, the first week of June typically marks the start of our summer season. We may see an occasional front, but, this is when the Jet Stream begins to retreat to the north. This is what triggers the hotter air to start moving up from the south.
For now, keep those sprinklers going and watch out for the intense sun we get. It can burn us in less than an hour.
