After three very active days, things will quiet down periodically. Storms today will only be east of the Cascades and very isolated. Also, from Crater Lake north and east storms will develop. Elsewhere, it will be a quiet day with mostly sunny skies but hot temperatures.

We’ll again be warming into the triple digits for the valleys. This will be the 14th triple digit day this calendar year. Typically we average about 9. The most we’ve ever had in a year is 23 from 1990. We ended July as the warmest month on record breaking numerous records in regards to temperatures.

Isolated storms will return to include the Cascades and Northern California throughout the weekend. A fire weather watch is in effect for the Basin Saturday afternoon and evening. Storms will likely continue into next week, being isolated to scattered depending on the day. They do look to finally come to an end between Tuesday and Wednesday of next week. Dry and quiet weather will then be ongoing. The heat does not appear to break anytime soon, and highs near 100 will last through next week.
