MODELS REMAIN IN GOOD AGREEMENT WITH THE FORECAST FOR THE WEEKEND.
EXPECT THE MAIN LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM TO HEAD DOWN THE PACIFIC COAST
DURING THE WEEKEND. THIS WILL KEEP THE WIDESPREAD PRECIPITATION WITH
THE LOW...WEST OF THE REGION. EXPECT SHOWERS MAINLY ACROSS THE
MOUNTAINS AND HIGHLANDS FOR SATURDAY. GFS IS SHOWING BETTER CHANCES
FOR SHOWERS OVER THE CENTRAL MOUNTAINS DOWN THROUGH BURLEY...ROSE
SNOW CHANCES IN THOSE AREAS. STILL NOT EXPECTING MUCH SNOW WITH THIS
SYSTEM. WILL KEEP THE THREAT FOR ISOLATED SHOWERS AROUND ON SUNDAY
AS THE SYSTEM DROPS SOUTH OF THE REGION. EXPECT MAINLY DRY
CONDITIONS SUNDAY NIGHT INTO MONDAY. MODELS CONTINUE TO SHOW ANOTHER
SYSTEM AFFECTING THE REGION MONDAY NIGHT INTO TUESDAY. FAIRLY
CONFIDENT THE AREA WILL SEE SOMETHING FROM THIS NEXT SYSTEM ALTHOUGH
THERE IS STILL QUITE A BIT OF UNCERTAINTY AND DISAGREEMENT AS TO
