.SHORT TERM...Today through Monday.
Upper level trof will continue to shift east and rain and snow
will continue in the eastern Highlands but taper off through the
day. Temperatures will remain well below normal across southeast
Idaho today with highs in the 40s mountains and 50s to low 60s in
the Snake Plain. Expect much warmer temperatures close to normal
Sunday and Monday. It will also be dry through Sunday night.
Showers may return late Monday as another cold front works through
Idaho. Some areas may see patchy frost tonight but not expecting a
hard freeze.

.LONG TERM...Tuesday through Saturday.
Multiple systems will work through Idaho and expect much colder
temperatures Tuesday behind the first front. Windy conditions are
possible Tuesday through Thursday as another cold front works
through in the Wednesday to Thursday time frame. Well below normal
temperatures are expected all the way into next weekend with the
potential for valley rain and high mountain snow showers Tuesday
through Saturday.


.AVIATION...A low pressure trough was working east into the Wyoming
border region early this morning and should continue its EWRD trek
today as a dry and cool WNW flow gradually overspreads SRN Idaho.
Some lingering moisture will impact KDIJ and KIDA resulting in
ongoing shower activity and lower VFR/MVFR CIGS throughout the day
with partial clearing this evening. The remaining terminals should
see improving VFR BKN to SCT conditions. Huston

.FIRE WEATHER...Temperatures will oscillate from normal to below
normal through the period as a series of Pacific disturbances push
through the region Monday/Tuesday and again Wednesday through
Friday. Each system will bring strong gusty winds, cooler
temperatures behind the associated cold front and valley rain and
mountain snow. Huston
