.DISCUSSION...A ridge of high pressure will be the dominant
feature through the weekend into the first part of next week. The
exception will be a weak disturbance under cutting the ridge late
Sunday into Monday which could bring a few showers to southwest
Montana. Tuesday and Wednesday appear to be the warmest and driest
days of the week. A cold front will swing through the region
sometime during the latter part of the week, but timing and
moisture is uncertain at this time.
