METEOROLOGIST NICHOLAS SNIDER – EVENING UPDATE

Sunday, September 05, 2021

Another red flag or fire weather warning has been issued for eastern Lincoln, eastern Jerome, Blaine, and Minidoka counties until 9 PM Monday. With low humidity values, overall dry conditions over the past few weeks, and breezy weather, the ability for fires to spread quickly will be there. Do your best to prevent fires from igniting over the next few days, as Mother Nature is going to be working against us as it is anyway!

Smoky skies and breezy conditions will be the story of the day tomorrow as a slight dip in the jet stream to the north enhances winds aloft. The breeziest of the conditions should be experienced over the northern portions of the forecast area, where a Red Flag Warning is in place. Breezy conditions should lighten up as an upper-level area of high pressure makes its way into the area. However, hot temperatures will result from this area of high pressure aloft. This will have trouble getting out of the area but will slowly move off to the east of the region by Thursday. The southerly winds beginning on Thursday will allow moisture to return back to the area. This moisture will generate clouds on Thursday, and chances of showers and thunderstorms as well for the weekend. Breezy conditions return (especially off to the north) during the latter portion of the week and earlier part of the weekend.
