Meteorologist predicts triple-digit heat by Friday in Lewiston

This prediction is for Lewiston — which is always hotter than Moscow. But we’re getting some mid-90s as well. 

Get ready for a mini heat wave.

According to the National Weather Service, Lewiston and surrounding areas have a good chance of hitting triple-digit temperatures Friday.

“We have a ridge building over the region,” said Joey Clevenger, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service at Spokane. “It just keeps any of the cold air from the north of us coming down.”

Official sensors at area weather stations are forecast to stop just short of 100 degrees today. But Clevenger said it’s possible that some locals will see triple-digit heat.

Friday should represent a peak in temperatures. Clevenger said hot temperatures will continue Saturday and then minor relief from the heat will arrive on Sunday and Monday.

“We are looking for that ridge to start to break down and we are expecting a little bit of a temperature decrease starting next week,” he said. “It won’t be too much of a relief, but definitely not triple digits.”

    1. Great question! If it’s a record high, it’s a data point.
      But in the AGW crowd, every record high is a proof and every record low is discounted as an anomaly.
      You can’t have it both ways.

    2. For instance, today Lewiston got up to 101°F. The record high for the first week of July was 109°F in 1922 — well before AGW began.
      That’s what I mean about data points versus proof.
