Weather Synopsis

Weather Concerns
A mostly dry west-southwest flow aloft is anticipated today with isolated thunderstorm activity most likely across the southern
portion of the Dispatch Area. Locally breezy winds are also possible in the Salmon Breaks region this afternoon. A low pressure trough positioned along the Canadian border will dig south and east late tonight promoting early morning showers and isolated thunderstorm activity. Scattered thunderstorm activity is possible in the afternoon hours which may necessitate the issuance of a Red Flag highlight after coordination with dispatch and IMETs.
