.DISCUSSION....High pressure and northwest flow over the area
will produce cool temperatures into the weekend. The high will
move off to the east on Sunday, allowing warmer temperatures to
return. Temperatures in the 90s for portions of the Magic Valley
and Snake Plain are possible early next week. Some moisture will
return to the region as well and a few isolated to scattered
thunderstorms will be possible.

.AVIATION...Expect clear skies through Friday with winds continuing
to diminish with northerly winds at IDA...PIH and BYI by Friday
morning.

GK

&&

.FIRE WEATHER...Dry and cooler conditions will continue through
Saturday before another big warmup commences Sunday into Monday.
The next best chance for thunderstorms will be Monday into Tuesday
but it still looks mainly dry.   Minimum humidities will trend in
the under 20 percent range through Monday but the stronger winds
aren`t expected until Tuesday.  It looks like another cooling trend
Tuesday through much of next week as another cold front moves
through the region.

GK

&&

.HYDROLOGY...Streams and rivers across the central Idaho mountains
and upper Snake highlands are experiencing some flooding from warm
weather over the past few days. An additional 1,500 cfs was released
from Palisades this afternoon. This should keep water levels just
below flood stage on the Snake River at Heise. Cooler weather is
likely through the weekend, which will allow the rivers to subside.
Warmer weather is likely once again early next week and a return to
flooding is possible then.
