.DISCUSSION...

Idaho: The next 3 days will be pretty similar. A trough of low pressure
and plenty of low level moisture over the region will be the catalyst
for afternoon and evening showers and possibly a thunderstorm. Temperatures
will return to near normal condtions. A more organized weather system
is expected to produce more widespread precipitation Sunday and Monday.
