Warm temperatures during the day and overnight will continue the

focus over the higher terrain. Gusty outflow winds and frequent
lightning will be the primary threats with storms. Drier
conditions are expected Wednesday and Thursday, then another
chance of afternoon showers and thunderstorms is expected Friday.

Temperatures will run above normal through midweek which will
accelerate the snow melt. As a result, some rivers will rise to,
or remain above bank level resulting in bothersome low-land
flooding.
