Weather Outlook:

Locally breezy winds will continue across portions of the Pacific Northwest, as a cold front and upper level disturbance make their way inland with a chance of showers. Ahead of this front, isolated thunderstorms will develop over the Great Basin; while hot and dry weather will persist over California and the Desert Southwest. A strong upper level low pressure system and associated cold front will continue to focus showers and thunderstorms from the southern Plains northeastward through the Upper Midwest. The Gulf Coast states will also see showers and thunderstorms.
