.DISCUSSION...Mainly dry conditions and cooler than normal
temperatures will prevail over the northern Rockies through
Tuesday. We will continue to be under a low pressure trough and
there will be just enough instability and moisture for an
afternoon mountain shower or two.

High pressure settles in over the region Wednesday through much of
Friday for dry weather and temperatures at or slightly above
normal for the first time in over a week.

Late the week and weekend the overall weather pattern will change
from high pressure over the region to a more westerly flow. There
is a lot of uncertainty what kind or how big of a change might
occur but there will be a change. We will have a much better idea
by midweek for this change.


.AVIATION...Clear skies will occur through the overnight hours at
all terminals.  There is a very slight potential for some fog at
KMSO between 25/1200z and 25/1400z. Otherwise VFR conditions at
all terminals through Monday afternoon.
