...Generally wet thunderstorms increasing Tuesday...

.DISCUSSION...

Idaho: Today will be a generally warmer and drier day than Sunday
with continuing thermal belts tonight. Some showers and
thunderstorms are possible Tuesday. A slight warming trend follows
through mid-week, with Thursday being the warmest day. Cooling
and moistening is then expected for the latter half of the week
and into the weekend with an increasing threat of thunderstorms.

Montana: Today will be a slightly warmer and drier day, with the
thunderstorm threat confined to southwest Montana. By Tuesday
afternoon, showers and thunderstorms will develop across western
Montana as a disturbance moves in. The storms look to be
generally wet. Meanwhile, another backdoor cold front will sweep
through the area late Tuesday bringing another wind shift, though
winds will not be as strong as the last backdoor front. A warming
and drying trend then continues, with Thursday marking the hottest
day of the week. From Friday onward, there is an increasing threat
of wet thunderstorms.
