.DISCUSSION...Satellite imagery shows monsoon moisture plume near
the southeast corner of ID...and some convection beginning to
develop over northeast UT. Looks like it should stay just to the
east of ID...but as the upper ridge builds up a little on Fri...
monsoon moisture may get pulled into southeast ID. Have added
isold tstms near the WY border for Fri afternoon. The upper low
off the Pac NW coast is still expected to move inland tonight...
and across northern ID on Fri. This will drag a dry cold front
across the area...resulting in windy conditions on Fri and a
little cooler temps Fri thru Mon. Temps climb back up on Tue and
remain warm thru Thursday. No precip expected. Hedges

&&

.AVIATION...Light winds with increasing mid level clouds tonight. A
cold front will arrive on Friday. Expect breezy conditions to
develop around mid morning and continue into the afternoon.
