.DISCUSSION...

Idaho: A gradual warming and drying trend is expected through late next
week as a ridge of high pressure builds over the region. The one
exception is on Tuesday, when a weak disturbance moves through and could
bring a few light showers to the region. By Thursday/Friday
temperatures will be in the 70s to low 80s for many areas. In the
long term, models are hinting at more westerly flow for the following
weekend, which will bring increasing winds and chances for rain.
