* Central Idaho Dispatch Area weather impact summary (Zones 475

So far thunderstorm coverage has been limited due to cloud cover today. Monsoon
moisture will keep showers and thunderstorms going Thursday. Expect the possibility
of at least isolated thunderstorms each night, with coverage approaching scattered

thunderstorms at this point. Gusty winds over 30mph are possible, along with heavy
rainfall with deeper monsoon moisture in place and slower storm motion.

than widely-scattered thunderstorms at this point. Gusty winds over 30mph are possible,
along with heavy rainfall with deeper monsoon moisture in place and slower storm motion.
