Hot weather will continue for another day before we have a very slight cooling trend for the weekend. Smoke and haze will persist over the region, keeping visibility limited in the valleys. Mostly sunny today with a high of 97.
Monsoon moisture is spreading north into southeast Oregon and southern Idaho, and by this afternoon will lead to some clouds building up with a slight chance of thunderstorms, although the best chance will be in southeast Oregon, and south of the Snake River in Idaho. Gusty winds will be the main result of the storms, with limited rainfall.
Tomorrow still a few clouds and chance of thundershowers, but a low pressure trough will move through the region with a cool front. Daytime highs will be cooler in the low 90's then sunny and hazy with continued hot conditions in the mid to upper 90's through midweek.
