.DISCUSSION...Dominant upper ridge is in place over the coastal
states giving us a northwesterly flow aloft. Some potential for
fog/stratus development in the early morning hours today and
tomorrow, but otherwise scattered high clouds. A weak upper system
is expected to drop in from the northwest early Thursday. This
system may bring light precip to the Central Mountains and Upper
Snake Plain. It should be a rather fast-moving system and we`re
back under the influence of strong upper ridging through the
weekend. There is evidence another system will drop in from the
northwest again next Monday with similar impacts as the Thursday
system. Highs through the period should continue to be well above
normal. Hinsberger

.AVIATION...There`s some potential for patchy fog this morning. Lots
of uncertainty so will take a wait and see approach and continue 6SM
BR at most TAF locations this morning. Otherwise, expect clear
weather day with light winds.

.FIRE WEATHER...High pressure will produce dry weather today. A cold
front will approach the area Wednesday, producing slightly breezier
conditions. The front will move through Wednesday Night into
Thursday and may kick out a few isolated high elevation showers. Dry
weather returns for late week and continues into the weekend.
