.DISCUSSION...

Pleasant conditions are expected this weekend. A departing low
pressure system will leave in its wake a chance of a few
thunderstorms over the Glacier Park region today, along with
breezy afternoon winds for most areas, otherwise it will be a warm
and dry day. High pressure ridging builds in Sunday for further
warming under mostly sunny skies allowing high temperatures
to return to seasonable levels.

A predominately westerly flow, with the occasional embedded
shortwave moving through the flow, will setup for much of the week
next week for the Northern Rockies. This will help in the
development of scattered showers and thunderstorms each afternoon,
mainly for areas along the Continental Divide in western Montana.

Elsewhere across western Montana, temperatures will be around
normal, if not a couple degrees above normal. Usually this time of
the year, valleys typically see high temperatures in the upper 80s
to low 90s. North-central Idaho valleys, however will see much
warmer temperatures, where some locations could see 100 degrees by
midweek.

.AVIATION...VFR conditions are expected at TAF sites over the next
24 hours. A few thunderstorms will be possible this afternoon
around the Glacier NP region but otherwise it will be dry. Breezy

especially for KMSO and KBTM.
