.DISCUSSION...

Idaho: Developing high pressure will steadily begin a drying and
warming trend that will continue for the rest of the week.
Clearing skies will allow for the cooler-than-normal airmass
currently over Idaho to lower temperatures to well below average
overnight tonight, producing frost in select locations. By
Wednesday though, temperatures will rebound during the day back up
into more seasonal values with steadily lowering humidity values.
RH values in the teens and single digits are likely later this
week.
