Discussion for Saturday,  May 30 through Sunday, June 7:

A very warm air mass lies over Eastern Washington today and will be around into Saturday, then a strong upper level storm will move in later Saturday to bring showers and much cooler air.  Showers could be locally heavy and possibly include hail and gusty winds.  Cooler air following Sunday and Monday could drop night temperatures into the mid to upper 30s in the upper Cascade valleys Monday and possibly Tuesday mornings, then the air warms some for most of the rest of next week with night temperatures in the 40s and 50s.  Long range forecasts indicate that a cool storm in the Gulf of Alaska could move down into Washington next weekend and bring air that would be cold enough for a potential for low 30s in cold spots, so growers should continue to monitor forecasts. 

As stated this will be the final Clearwest forecast.
