Weather Discussion & Outlook

Big Low pressure center up in southern Saskatchewan, Canada is moving slowly east today. However, it leaves behind a weak upper level Trof of Low pressure that extends from Montana to Nevada, & that Trof will be over us the next couple of days. Temps will remain cooler, & winds aloft will be lighter, with some breeze developing in the valley in the afternoons, to help stir out some of the smoke, I hope!. There will be just enough moisture around in the atmosphere later today & on Thursday to possibly create some scattered showers, & maybe even an isolated thundershower around NW Wyoming. Better chances today over Yellowstone Park, & best chance for showers around JH will be on Thursday. This whole Trof shifts east of the Rockies on Friday, with some clouds around during the day, but then clearing out Friday night. Dry weather, mostly sunny skies, & moderate Southwesterly winds Saturday into Sunday. We might see a few clouds going by late Sunday into early Monday, but generally, it looks like dry weather for us Monday thru Wednesday of next week, with temps near normal for late August.
