...LOCALLY HEAVY RAIN, GUSTY WINDS POSSIBLE WITH SHOWERS AND
THUNDERSTORMS THROUGH THURSDAY...

.DISCUSSION...

* Central Idaho Dispatch Area weather impact summary (Zones 475
and 476)...

Monsoon moisture continues to stream into Idaho
again today due to southerly flow aloft ahead of an upper low over
northern California. Scattered showers and occasional thunderstorms
will be the rule today and tonight. Heavy cloud cover is keeping
temperatures down...which limits the thunderstorm activity somewhat.
The deep moisture also leads to increased rainfall amounts and
higher humidity. Although lightning and gusty outflow winds will be
an issue...the overall fire weather threat should be reduced enough
to not require a Red Flag Warning.

* East Idaho Dispatch Area weather impact summary (Zones 410...411
and 413)...

Monsoon moisture continues to stream into Idaho
again today due to southerly flow aloft ahead of an upper low over
northern California. Scattered showers and occasional thunderstorms
