.DISCUSSION...

Idaho: A warm dry week lies ahead for central Idaho. With temperatures
rising into the 80s in the low elevations from Wednesday onwards, expect
run off to increase area streams and rivers to rise. The afternoons
will be breezy with humidity in the 20s. There is a chance for
thunderstorms next Saturday night with the best chance for rain coming
Saturday night into Sunday.

Montana: A warm dry week lies ahead for western Montana. With
temperatures rising into the 80s in the low elevations Thursday and
Friday, expect run off to increase area streams and rivers to rise. The
afternoons will be breezy with humidity in the 20s and low teens.
Thermal belts will strengthen this week, and should help reduce the mid-

Saturday night everywhere except northwest Montana. The best chance for
rain is Saturday night and Sunday.
