8/3/2016 Air Quality Outlook
We’re seeing good air quality throughout most of the state today. Some areas immediately downwind of fires can expect smoke impacts and as weather begins to shift and settle back into lighter winds and higher temps. We may see some regional impacts from fires in Idaho and Eastern Oregon. Please check the Idaho and Oregon smoke blogs for updated information on fires in those states.
NWS Area Forecast Discussion. SYNOPSIS...
Our winds will be lighter today as Tuesday's storm system moves out of the region. Temperatures today will be cooler than average, but readings will climb quickly Thursday and Friday. Highs on Friday will be in the 90s. A slow moving low pressure system will bring a return of cooler temperatures and the chance for widely scattered showers and thunderstorms over the weekend.
