...Becoming much warmer and drier this weekend with poor RH
recoveries on mid slopes and ridges...

.DISCUSSION...Today will bring slightly warmer temperatures (though
still below normal) and drier conditions across western MT and
north central ID. Breezy west winds are expected to develop by
early afternoon, though not as strong as yesterday. A significant
warming and drying trend will begin in earnest this weekend, with
temperatures above normal once again by Sunday. Strong thermal
belts with poor RH recoveries on mid slopes and ridges should be
expected. Monsoonal moisture will return early next week,
introducing the threat for thunderstorms, especially across
southwest MT.
