.SHORT TERM...Tonight through Sunday. Strong winds will continue
through sunset, tapering off through midnight. A few showers and
storms are possible closer to the Divide but most of this will
remain in Montana or Lemhi County. It will remain cool behind
today's front, although only for about 36 hours. By morning,
expect frost or freeze conditions for much of the central and
eastern mountains except for the lower valleys. More rural spots
in the Upper Snake Plain may also flirt with frost conditions,
although it might be breezy enough to prevent it. Saturday
afternoon will only be a handful of degrees warmer but definitely
less windy. Sunday will be 5-10 degrees warmer and back above
average. Keyes

.LONG TERM...Sunday night through Friday. The upper ridge will
dominate the western US thru the week with warm temps each day.
Some subtropical moisture creeps into the ridge by Thu...resulting
in isold afternoon/eve tstms Thu and Fri mainly over the mtns.


.AVIATION...Other than the strong winds through this evening, all
TAF sites should see non-impact VFR weather. While not likely,
there could be some blowing dust in the vicinity of KIDA and/or
KPIH. Keyes


.FIRE WEATHER...Today's strong winds will wind down close to
sunset and quickly weaken through the rest of the evening. Cooler
temperatures are forecast over the next 36 hours, however it will
remain dry across all of central and eastern Idaho. We should get
one night of decent overnight humidity recovery before we deal
with thermal belts issues under the developing ridge. We could
isolated daytime thunderstorms return by midweek as limited
moisture works around and through the ridge. Keyes
