.SHORT TERM...A little warmer tonight with slightly more low-
level moisture than last night and less effective radiational
cooling.  Little change in max temps Sunday and min temps Monday
morning.  Monday afternoon, however, looks about five degrees
hotter than Sunday as a short wave ridge comes through on
southwesterly flow aloft.  Monday will still be a few degrees
below record highs for the date.  No significant winds.  Mostly
clear skies except smoky near wildfires.  No precipitation.

.LONG TERM...Monday night through Saturday...Southwest flow out
ahead of the next upper level trough will help cool things down
during this time frame. An increased chance of showers and afternoon
thunderstorms Tuesday afternoon, mostly in Baker County with a short
wave out ahead of the main trough axis. By Friday, the main trough
starts to dig south from off the British Columbia coastline. Things
remain unsettled through the end of the period with some uncertainty
in location/timing of any precipitation.


.AVIATION...VFR with areas of MVFR/IFR in and around wildfires.
Surface winds, southwest-west 5-10 kts, becoming variable Sunday
morning. Winds aloft to 10k feet MSL, southwest 10-20 kts.
