Fire Weather Planning Forecast for SW Idaho and SE Oregon
National Weather Service Boise ID
832 AM MDT Thu Jul 20 2017

...DRY COLD FRONTAL PASSAGE TODAY...
...THUNDERSTORMS EXPECTED BY SUNDAY...


.DISCUSSION...
A weak dry cold front pushes across eastern Oregon the morning
and into the Idaho zones this afternoon. This will bring a slight
increase in winds along with a shift to the northwest. Otherwise
near normal temperatures are expected through Friday. A weak upper
low will drift into the Pacific Northwest the weekend which will
usher in monsoonal moisture into the region as early as Sunday
with additional moisture expected Monday. Due to the potential
slow movement of this upper low...this may help in bringing some
wetting rains to the region.
