...WARMING AND DRYING CONDITIONS FOR MUCH OF NORTHERN ROCKIES
THROUGH AT LEAST TUESDAY...

.DISCUSSION...

High pressure will become the dominant weather feature over the
Northern Rockies through the middle of next week. Drying and
warming conditions will take place during this time. One exception
to the warming and drying will be found across southwest Montana,
as remnant moisture from tropical system Odile is expected to pass
through this weekend. Daytime winds will be fairly weak across the
region through Tuesday as well. Clouds will increase ahead of a
storm system around the Thursday/Friday time frame next week,
however conditions will remain mostly dry and very warm day and
night ahead of this time, particularly on middle and high
elevation slopes.
