Weather Authority Forecast for Thursday, July 31st @ 6:00 p.m.

Good Evening!

Today was another sizzler with daytime highs in the upper 90s and low 100s.

The Heat Advisory has expired, however, the Fire Weather Watch has been bumped up to a Red Flag Warning. This warning is for areas south of the Blue Mountains into central and northeastern Oregon--due to the potential for thunderstorms. 

High pressure is firmly established over us but there is also a 20 percent chance for thunderstorms tonight and Friday, across the entire region. More  Monsoonal moisture from the south continues to make its way north and it will keep the chance of thundershowers going into the upcoming weekend.

Stay safe and have a great evening!

Tim
