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.

Tonight, will be cool with clear skies and light winds. Temperatures will fall into the 20's for the Snake River Plain and 10's for the mountains.

More sunshine and very dry conditions will continue well into the weekend. This means Friday, Saturday and Sunday are looking fantastic for outdoor activities. Temperatures will continue to warm well above average with highs into the 50's and 60's.
