E. Wash./N. Idaho - Don't worry, the clouds building up across the area Saturday won't produce showers except for in some of the higher elevation areas. Some sun will break through this afternoon driving our temperatures up to right about normal for this time of year.
A small frontal boundary tied to the rain that moved across the lower part of the Columbia Basin will finally loosen up overnight, bringing some clouds overhead. This gives us a headstart on the Bloomsday forecast.
On Bloomsday Sunday we can expect a cloudy but mild start through mid-morning when the clouds should start to dissipate. Bloomies can expect a start temperature in the low 40's and low 50's by mid morning.
The extra sunshine should send temperatures into the mid 60's by the afternoon. This warming trend continues as the ridge moves inward forcing warmer air on top of us.
This surge of warm air will give us another 70-degree Monday which might be one of only three we get over the entire spring.
We'll keep our nice weather right though the middle of next week when another low pressure complex cuts into us introducing the chance of rain by Wednesday or Thursday.
