An upper low centered across extreme southeastern Idaho will
slowly move north along the Wyoming border today. This will
produce a few rounds of showers, maybe a thunderstorm or two,
across much of the high country today. Snow levels will run around
8500-9000 feet so some very minor accumulations on ridge tops will
be possible. The low will move into Montana on Sunday with gradual clearing expected during the day Sunday. Some lingering showers will continue Sunday across the high country of the eastern highlands and along the Continental Divide. Things look to dry out next week as high pressure sets up over the region with gradually warming temperatures throughout the week.
