Our heatwave continues as we get closer to the weekend. The desert ridge of high pressure is holding steady across the West keeping us mainly dry with a few passing clouds during the afternoon and maybe a stray storm near Yellowstone.

Thursday; clear, sunny, and hot. Highs in the 90's and some areas getting very close to the century mark. Mostly dry for the entire region.

Tonight; mostly clear and pleasant with lows dropping into the 50's and 60's. 

Friday; mostly clear, sunny, and hot. Highs in the 90's. A few pop-up dark clouds in the afternoon over the high country, but most places should stay dry.

Saturday and Sunday, a slight chance of an afternoon thunderstorm, with highs well into the 90's.
