.DISCUSSION...Quick update this eve to expire Red Flag Warnings,
see section below. A slow moving ill-defined front will move into
the region tonight. This system will work with the monsoonal
moisture over the region to develop scattered thunderstorms this
afternoon. These storms will persist into the evening and perhaps
even linger through the overnight hours. Models showing quite a bit
of cloud cover on Sunday which may help to keep temps a few degree
cooler. Otherwise isolated thunderstorms will once again be possible
on Sunday and Monday as the front stalls over southeast Idaho. Best
chances for isolated storms will be across the Snake Plain and
eastern highlands. Drier air will work into the region for Tuesday
and Wednesday, but it looks like monsoonal moisture could return to
the region by the end of the week. Valle

.AVIATION...Convection starting to develop and have vicinity
thunderstorms at all sites this afternoon and evening.  Models
showing wave pushing through late tonight and went ahead and left in
some vicinity showers overnight and Sunday morning.  Will remain VFR
through period with light winds other than thunderstorm outflows. GK

.FIRE WEATHER...Red Flag Warnings were cancelled at 9 PM MDT.
See previous comments below. Huston

Isolated thunderstorms are expected Sunday mainly focused on eastern
zones 411 410 and 413.   Expect cooler temperatures Sunday as well.
Thunderstorm threat expected to decrease Monday through Wednesday.
