.DISCUSSION...High pressure and northwest flow will produce drier
and cooler weather through the weekend. Warmer weather will
return for next week along with the threat of thunderstorms. We
will be sitting on the northern edge of the western U.S. ridge
with a few systems trying to move through the region which will
act as the focus for thunderstorms.

.AVIATION...High pressure ridging will build in today and remain for
several days bringing VFR conditions. Expect some breezy winds today
and to a lesser extent tomorrow and Friday. Wyatt

&&

.FIRE WEATHER...Look for an extended period of drying with
cooler temperatures in Northwest flow. It will also be breezy in the
post frontal regime with 20 to 30 mph possible particularly today
and then gradually drop off each day through the weekend. The next
threat for precipitation is next Monday into Tuesday. Wyatt

&&

.HYDROLOGY...Saw impressive rises yesterday across the central Idaho
mountains as hot temperatures produced higher flows. Expecting a bit
more of a response from the Teton River at Driggs since it usually
takes a couple of days for snowmelt to make its way down. An
additional 1000 cfs is being released from Palisades which is not
expected to produce flooding. Cooler weather is likely for the rest
of the week so we should see area streams and rivers subside some
within a couple of days.
