.DISCUSSION...Monsoon moisture continues to stream into Idaho
again today due to southerly flow aloft ahead of an upper low over
northern California. Scattered showers and occasional thunderstorms
will be the rule today and tonight. Heavy cloud cover is keeping
temperatures down...which limits the thunderstorm activity somewhat.
The deep moisture also leads to increased rainfall amounts and
higher humidity. Although lightning and gusty outflow winds will be
an issue...the overall fire weather threat should be reduced.
