JORDAN DRESSMAN – AFTERNOON UPDATE
Monday, October 24, 2016
Good afternoon, Southern Idaho I hope everyone has a great start to the workweek. Well it turns out I still have a job seeing as Mississippi State lost to m GMs team of Kentucky this weekend so he is rather happy this today. A few things to discuss this afternoon so we will jump right into it. I am keeping scattered showers and even a few thunderstorms in the forecast today especially once we get into the later part of the afternoon and early evening. Temperatures will remain warm actually above average not just today, but the entire week. I am keeping a shower chance around for Tuesday, but amounts and coverage will be much less.
Upper level ridging will take hold through the day on Wednesday allowing temperatures to warm to near 70 both Wednesday and Thursday. Keep in mind our normal high for late October is 60 degrees, we will be warm across the mountains as well with highs in the lower 60s.
Once we hit Thursday and Friday there is just all kinds of disagreement. Models really cannot decide what they want to do rain wise. I am keeping rain in the forecast both Saturday and Sunday, but models are bringing in the opportunity on Friday even. I am hoping by tomorrow there will be more in the way of agreement so I can get this hammered out given it is Halloween weekend.
