.DISCUSSION...

Idaho: Dry conditions will be present across north central Idaho through
at least the middle of next week. Humidity will be very low for much of
this time, including single digit daytime humidity and poor overnight
humidity recovery on open terrain. Afternoon breezes in the upslope/upcanyon
direction will be common as well. Friday appears to be a day to watch in
particular, when very low humidity and gusty winds will combine ahead
of a dry cold front. Otherwise, very little weather change day-to-day
into next week.

Montana: Mostly dry conditions will be present across western Montana
through middle of next week. Very low daytime humidity and poor
overnight humidity recovery on mid-slopes will be common during this
time. Afternoon breezes in the upslope/upcanyon direction will be common
as well. Friday will be a day to watch closely, when daytime humidity as
low as single digits and wind gusts 30+ mph may combine ahead of a dry
cold front. Otherwise, very little weather change day-to-day into the
next week.
