Strong high pressure over the Pacific NW that brought record-breaking heat over the last few days is starting to weaken and shift east. That will bring relief from the record heat but it still remains warm for our region through the weekend.

Mostly sunny skies with highs in the upper 70s to around 80 degrees at the lake through the weekend. We will see southwest breezes on the lake Wednesday afternoon with gusts of 20-30 mph bringing some chop on the water. Then lighter winds expected Thursday – Sunday.

The caveat will be gusty outflow winds near any afternoon thunderstorms. Moisture is increasing from the south with thunderstorm chances each afternoon. Watch for lightning and gusty outflow winds on the lake with any thunderstorms along with heavy downpours.

Afternoon thunderstorm chances continue through the weekend. Sunday some drier air may start to work in bringing a lower chance for thunderstorms as compared to Thursday through Saturday. The precipitation will be hit and miss. Some areas that see thunderstorms could see heavy downpours while other areas stay dry through the weekend.

A trough may work into the West next week. We could start to see a slight cooldown along with some drier air starting Monday through midweek. Sunny skies with highs in the 70s on the lake. Afternoon Zephyr winds could return with gusty southwest winds during the afternoons.
