.DISCUSSION...A ridge of high pressure will build over the
Northern Rockies this weekend causing warm and dry conditions.  The
models continue to indicate some monsoon moisture making its way
up into the region by Monday and lingering through much of the
week. This moisture could cause afternoon/evening thunderstorms.
Also you can expect to have poor RH recoveries over the mid slopes
and ridges throughout the week.
