.DISCUSSION...

A cold front will be moving through the Northern Rockies bring showers,
gusty winds and cooler temperatures. The upper flow will become
northwesterly later tonight through Tuesday which will keep showers
lingering throughout the period and temperatures running 5 degrees below
seasonal readings. A ridge of high pressure builds over the Northern
Rockies Tuesday night into Wednesday allowing for a fairly dry period
and significant warming. The flow becomes southwesterly for the latter
part of the week which will keep temperatures warm, but the threat of
afternoon/evening showers and thunderstorms will increase each day.
