.DISCUSSION...

Idaho: High pressure will lead to warm and dry conditions, along
with light winds through much of the coming week. Daytime
temperatures will be seasonable today but rise to above normal
levels by Monday. Thermal belt development is also expected on the
mid-slopes each night, while afternoon Rh will fall into the
teens for many locations. The only slight chance for thunderstorm
activity looks to be Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons as weak
disturbances pass by.
