.DISCUSSION...

A ridge of high pressure along the west US coast will intensify
through early next week. This pattern will translate to relatively
dry and warming conditions across the region during this time. One
exception to the dry conditions will be high elevation snow
showers along the Continental Divide, however the impact will
likely be minimal.

The models are still struggling on when the ridge will begin to
break down next week. One model is suggesting the Northern Rockies
to transition into an active weather pattern by as early as next
Tuesday, while another is holding onto the ridge until the latter
part of the week.

&&

.AVIATION...Expect quiescent flying conditions today and tonight
under clear skies and light winds at all Northern Rockies terminals.

&&

.MSO WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES...
MT...None.
ID...None.
