High pressure is back in the picture as it dominates the Western half of the United States. For us that means a long stretch on consecutive sunshine and much warmer temperatures especially by the weekend.

Friday will be mostly sunny with blue skies and maybe a couple clouds. Winds will be light out of the southwest and afternoon temperatures will be mild with highs into the 50's for the Snake River Plain and 40's into the mountains.

Tonight, cool temps can be expected with mostly clear conditions. Lows into the 20's. Winds will be light.

Saturday and Sunday will continue with abundant sunshine and even warmer temperatures as highs get close to 60 degrees!
