Weather Discussion & Outlook

Just a few high clouds roaming thru today, a little warmer temps than Thurs., at all elevations. Clouds increase over us Saturday afternoon as an upper level Trof of Low pressure swings across northern Idaho and into NW Wyoming Saturday night & early Sunday morning. That Trof will bring a few showers over the mountains at least, by later in the day Saturday. Better chance of some showers in the valley overnight Saturday, as a rain/snow shower mix. Then once the cold air arrives, that should be snow showers to the valley floor Sunday morning. Not much accumulation, and the Trof moves east of the Divide pretty quickly on Sunday, affecting the rest of Wyoming, along & east of the Divide with some snow. Warmer & dry weather Monday as a Ridge of High pressure builds inland over Idaho. That Ridge shifts east of us on Tues. Clouds increase Tues. and showers will be possible again Tues. night & Wed. Clouds & showers decrease Thurs. Dry weather next Friday, the way it looks right now.
