Weather Outlook

A strong ridge of high pressure centered over the Yukon and Northwest Territories will keep eastern portions of the Alaskan interior warm and dry. There will be a slight chance for isolated thunderstorms along the North Slope and east of Fairbanks. Western portions of the state will be wet under the influence of a stalled frontal system.

A broad trough over the Pacific Northwest through the Northern Great Plains will keep temperatures near normal across much of the west.

Slightly breezy conditions are expected across the Great Basin and Central Rockies.

Across the Southwest, monsoonal moisture will continue to ooze northward into New Mexico and southeastern Arizona and will lead to another round of scattered wet storms in the afternoon.
