.DISCUSSION...
Generally mild weather expected over the next week as an upper
ridge comes to dominate the western CONUS.

Chinook warm front dropping into Montana out of Canada this
morning. Temperatures have been warming, and expect winds to
increase behind the front later this morning. Band of mid level
clouds accompany the front along with a few radar echos. However
low levels are generally dry, so not anticipating any significant
precipitation with the system.

Temperatures warm through midweek as the ridge builds and
downslope flow brings warmer air across the Rockies.

Next feature of note is a backdoor cold front that drops into the
state Thursday night. This front is driven by a shortwave trof
pushing through central Canada, deflecting the ridge westward.
This will pull some colder air back into the northern plains for
the end of the week. As the ridge builds back up, temperatures
will also rebound through next weekend. Ebert
