.DISCUSSION...

Idaho: Unstable conditions will exist today, though winds will not be as
strong as those experienced yesterday. Slightly higher humidity should
be expected today as well. Tonight, conditions become much more stable,
and will allow inversions to develop, as well as thermal belts. RH
recoveries will be poor. Hot and dry weather will persist into the
weekend.

Montana: Unstable conditions will exist today, though winds will not be as
strong as those experienced yesterday. Slightly higher humidity should
be expected today as well. That being said, southwest Montana will still
see humidity in the low teens, possibly the single digits today.
Tonight, conditions become much more stable, and will allow inversions
to develop, as well as thermal belts. RH recoveries will be poor. Hot
and dry weather will persist into the weekend.
