.DISCUSSION...

Idaho: High pressure will be the dominant feature over north
central Idaho through at least Monday causing a warming and dry
trend. Temperatures should be running 5 degrees above normal by
Monday. A disturbance will be making its way through the region
during the mid week, but exact timing on shower activity over
Idaho is uncertain at this time. Any storms that do develop appear
to be light and isolated. Then a ridge builds back over the area
for the later part of the week keeping the region warm and dry.

Montana: High pressure will become the dominant feature over
north central Idaho through at least Monday causing a warming and
dry trend. Temperatures should be running 5 degrees above normal
by Monday. A disturbance will be making its way through the region
during the mid week. The feature will be showers and thunderstorms
across northwest Montana and along the continental divide, but
exact timing on shower activity is uncertain at this time. Then a
ridge builds back over the area for the later part of the week
keeping the region warm and dry.
