.DISCUSSION...

Idaho: A ridge of high pressure will be the dominant feature over
the region for the next seven days as temperatures steadily get
hotter. A subtle disturbance will flatten the ridge on
Wednesday/Thursday which will cause gusty westerly winds, but
temperatures will still be running above normal for this time of
year. By the weekend, temperatures should be around 20 degrees
above normal. Thermal belts should also develop each night and
strengthen through the weekend.

Montana: Lingering moisture could cause a few showers across the
area this afternoon and evening. But a ridge of high pressure
will become the dominant feature over the region for the next
seven days as temperatures steadily get hotter. A subtle
disturbance will flatten the ridge on Wednesday/Thursday which
will cause gusty westerly winds, but temperatures will still be
running above normal for this time of year. By the weekend,
temperatures should be around 20 degrees above normal. Thermal
belts should also develop each night and strengthen through the
weekend.
