Synopsis...
a weather system will trigger isolated to scattered thunderstorm
activity through early this evening. Tuesday and beyond will be
mainly dry but continued very warm. Friday looks to be the warmest
day this week...with valley highs ranging from 96 to 104.

&&

Discussion...
the line of thunderstorms that moved across the northern mountains
are now pushing into extreme northwest portion of Montana late
this evening. Quieter weather is expected for the rest of
tonight. As such, we have let the red flag warning expire. Skies
will clear across much of the region. All the rain that fell
across the northern Panhandle may produce a brief period of fog in
those valleys, but any fog should burn off quickly in the morning
on Tuesday. /Svh

Aviation...
06z tafs: shortwave ridging of higher pressure will build in over
the region. This will promote clearing skies and VFR conditions at
all taf sites. Patchy fog will be possible in the northern
Panhandle early Tuesday morning, but should remain north of kcoe.
/Svh
