Starting Our Temperature Climb

We are starting to heat up out there once again as we head into this next week. Monday will kick off with mostly sunny skies and areas of haze around the Inland Northwest. The afternoon Monday will see temperatures back near average into the mid 80's. Tuesday looks even a bit warmer than the previous day and by Wednesday we will hover in the low to mid 90's for the afternoon. At the end of the week we level off in the upper 80's with still no rain in sight.
