.DISCUSSION...

Monday through Thursday this week, a ridge of high pressure will
be the main feature over the Northern Rockies. This will lead to
above normal temperatures, poor afternoon mixing, and low
afternoon RHs. Mid slopes and ridges will also see thermal belts
develop overnight. Moisture in southwest flow will lead to
scattered thunderstorms Thursday and Friday afternoons. Expect
cooling temperatures, increasing RHs, and more chances for rain as
a trough moves in this weekend.
