.DISCUSSION...A ridge of high pressure will continue to be the
dominant feature over the Northern Rockies through the weekend.
The ridge will keep temperatures above normal with strong thermal
belts at night. Surges of monsoon moisture will cause
afternoon/evening showers and thunderstorms. Storms could be
capable of producing moderate to heavy rainfall on Friday as a
plume of moisture from a tropical system will make its way into
the region.
