.SHORT TERM...Today through Saturday night.
Main feature today through Friday will be upper level trof over
southeast Idaho. Expect isolated to scattered showers and
thunderstorms through Friday with much cooler temperatures
expected. Upper ridge will move in Saturday and expect much drier
conditions and a warming trend with temperatures rising to near
normal readings for late May. Not expecting strong winds through

.LONG TERM...Sunday through Thursday. Models consistent with a high
amplitude upper ridge over the western US through midweek. The
models also stick with limited moisture flowing into the ridge...
resulting in isold aftn/eve tstms mainly over the central mtns and
eastern highlands. The pattern appears to be changing on Thu as a
deep upper trof is expected to move into the Pac NW. This will
increase the threat of precip on Thu. Hedges

tonight. Isold tstms are possible mainly this aftn/eve over the
mtns. As the trof continues southward...precip chances increase over
all areas. Conditions are expected to stay VFR. Hedges
