FORECAST DISCUSSION
There are widespread showers shown on radar
across the forecast area, however, much of the
precipitation is not reaching the ground as
conditions are still quite warm and dry in the
lowest levels, especially in the Lower Columbia
Basin and adjacent valleys/Foothills of the
Blues. The mountains are getting some light
rain, but of not much significance. A large area
of showers moved across the Blue, Wallowa and
Elkhorn mountains, which showed up on radar with
some heavy echo returns, but ground reports did
not show anything greater than a tenth of an
inch, which was reported near La Grande. The
showers continue to move to the northwest around
the southwest side of an upper shortwave over
northeast OR and eastern WA and ID. Expect light
showers for the rest of the night, but
decreasing in coverage and intensity. There has
been a few thunderstorms, mainly to the east and
northeast of the CWA, and there were some
lightning strikes within the forecast area, but
with not much rain. The current weather pattern
will persist on Sunday and Monday with more
showers and thunderstorms, especially in the
eastern most areas of the CWA and during the
afternoons and evenings. Then a weak ridge will
move across the CWA on Tuesday followed by
another and stronger upper trough for midweek.
The heat advisory will expire at 8 PM as
scheduled, and then the Red Flag Warnings later
on this evening. 88
