.DISCUSSION...

Idaho:
Monsoon moisture is still expected to bring the best chance for
thunderstorms this afternoon in the eastern Nez Perce NF and
Bitterroot NF. These storms are anticipated to have little rain
initially but will become more moist through the afternoon. Gusty
winds are likely with these thunderstorms. A disturbance this
evening will bring additional shower and thunderstorm chances to
the rest of north central Idaho, though, potential precipitation
appears to be light. Cooler temperatures with improvement to RHs
are anticipated for Tuesday. The best chance of wetting rains are
still on Wednesday with another disturbance. The rest of the week
looks dry with increased winds on Thursday. The next disturbance
is possible on Saturday so chances for showers will return.

Montana:
Showers and thunderstorms are still anticipated to develop this
afternoon as monsoon moisture moves into the region. Southwest
Montana (Bitterroot NF/Beaverhead-Deerlodge NF) is the area with
best chances for storms. These storms will likely begin as fairly
dry thunderstorms and become better rain producers during the
afternoon. Showers are thunderstorms will likely expand northward
into the rest of western Montana this evening and overnight as a
disturbance and associated cool front passes through. Increased
winds and showers will be associated with this front. High
temperatures will then be cooler on Tuesday with more moist
humidities. Showers and thunderstorms will again be possible in
southwest Montana and along the divide Tuesday afternoon.
Thunderstorms with chances for wetting rains are possible with
another disturbance on Wednesday. Increased winds are likely
Thursday with relatively dry conditions. Another disturbance is
possible for Saturday with the return of shower and thunderstorm
activity.

.DISCUSSION...

Idaho: A surge of moisture from the Desert Southwest will arrive
over the region this afternoon, with shower and thunderstorm
activity increasing. Storms will be a mix of dry and wet this
afternoon through the overnight, with breezy winds accompanying the
frontal passage. Daytime humidity will edge slightly higher today
and appreciably higher on Tuesday. A second surge of moisture will
arrive on Wednesday afternoon, producing more showers and
thunderstorms. The southern portions of zones 102 and 103 will
have the best chance of wetting rain on Wednesday. Relatively dry
westerly flow aloft will exist Thursday through at least midday
Saturday. Yet another surge of moisture is anticipated to exist
over the region midday Saturday through the remainder of the
weekend.

Montana: A surge of moisture from the Desert Southwest will arrive
over western Montana late this afternoon, with a mix of dry and
wet thunderstorms. West central and southwest Montana forests
appear most likely to see thunderstorms during this time. Humidity
will certainly increase, even in the absence of wetting rain.
Breezy winds will accompany the frontal passage overnight.
Another surge of moisture is anticipated over southwest Montana
again on Wednesday, with mostly wet thunderstorms in the afternoon
and evening. Thursday through midday Saturday, relatively dry
westerly flow aloft will be present. Yet another surge of moisture
appears plausible for midday Saturday through the remainder of the
weekend, with more shower and thunderstorm activity to follow.

...Warm overnight temperatures with strong thermal belts
tonight...

...Potential for mainly dry thunderstorms Monday afternoon across
central Idaho and southwest Montana...

Idaho: A change in the weather pattern will begin tomorrow as high
pressure moves eastward, setting up southwest flow aloft.

...Hot and Extremely Dry with Strong Thermal Belts through
Monday...

...Dry Thunderstorms Possible for Southwest Montana Monday
Afternoon...

.DISCUSSION...

Idaho: Hot and dry conditions will continue to be present through
midday Monday. Poor overnight humidity recoveries at midslope and
ridgetop elevations will be present again tonight. A surge of
moisture from the Desert Southwest will move across the region
between Monday afternoon and Tuesday, initially increasing the
amount of dry lightning and intensifying wind gusts. Thunderstorms
are anticipated to become the wet variety by Monday night.
Temperatures will cool and humidity increase for Tuesday and
Wednesday, with a continued threat of thunderstorms during this
time. High pressure is expected to return Thursday and Friday,
with drying and warming conditions once again.

Montana: Hot and dry conditions will continue across the region
through Monday afternoon. Overnight humidity recoveries will be
quite poor over midslopes and ridgetop elevations once again
tonight. A surge of moisture from the Desert Southwest is
anticipated to move across the area late Monday afternoon through
Tuesday. Dry lightning and intensified wind gusts associated with
this moisture surge will be replaced by wet thunderstorms by
overnight Monday. Humidity will increase and temperatures decrease
for Tuesday and Wednesday. High pressure will return of the region
on Thursday and Friday, with drying and warming to occur once
again. However, a few thunderstorms will linger across southwest
Montana on Thursday afternoon and evening.

CONDITIONS...EXTREMELY LOW HUMIDITIES...AND HIGH HAINES INDEX
ACROSS THE KOOTENAI...FLATHEAD/GLACIER PARK...WEST LOLO...SALISH
AND KOOTENAI RESERVATION...

...Hot and extremely dry conditions with strong night time thermal
belts through Sunday...

...Increasing thunderstorm threat Monday and Tuesday...

.DISCUSSION...

Idaho: Extremely hot and dry conditions will continue through
Monday morning as high pressure remains in place. Thermal belts
will continue to strengthen, producing very poor RH recoveries on
the midslopes and ridges. Increasing monsoonal moisture will allow
for the threat of thunderstorms beginning Monday, becoming more
likely Monday night into Tuesday. These storms will likely begin
dry, but slowly moisten up by Tuesday. Increased moisture will
allow for a slight cooling trend and higher RHs by Tuesday.

Montana: Critical fire weather conditions are expected through
early this evening due to very hot and dry conditions and locally
breezy afternoon winds, mainly across northwest Montana. Extremely
hot/dry conditions with strong night time thermal belts will
continue into Monday, though wind will be less. Increasing
monsoonal moisture will allow for the threat of thunderstorms
beginning Monday, becoming more likely Monday night into Tuesday.
These storms will likely begin dry, but slowly moisten up by
Tuesday. Increased moisture will allow for a slight cooling trend
and higher RHs by Tuesday.

CONDITIONS...EXTREMELY LOW HUMIDITIES...AND HIGH HAINES INDEX
ACROSS THE KOOTENAI...FLATHEAD/GLACIER PARK...WEST LOLO...SALISH
AND KOOTENAI RESERVATION...

...Increasing thunderstorm threat Monday into Tuesday...

.DISCUSSION...

Idaho: A very hot and dry atmosphere is expected this weekend.
Along with the very low afternoon RH, overnight thermal belts
will be quite strong. The air mass should moisten slightly Sunday
night into Monday, then moisten further by early morning Tuesday.
Initially, any storms that develop may not produce much
precipitation. However, as the air mass moistens further later
Monday into Tuesday, wetter showers and thunderstorms are
expected.

Montana: Critical fire weather conditions are expected,
especially across northwest Montana where very dry fuel
conditions/fire danger will be further exaggerated by very low
relative humidity, hot temperatures, local breezy conditions, and
an unstable atmosphere this afternoon. The heat and low RH will
continue into Sunday with very strong overnight thermal belts.
The air mass should moisten slightly Sunday night into Monday,
then moisten even further by early morning Tuesday. Initially, any
storms that develop may not produce much precipitation. However,
as the air mass moistens further later Monday into Tuesday, wetter
showers and thunderstorms are expected.
