Discussion...

Quick update this evening to cancel the red flag warning and the
Flash Flood Watch. Just some very isolated small showers still
exist across the region. The main focus has shifted to a gust
front that developed from the showers across Shoshone County and
has moved west across the ID Panhandle and is now approaching
Lincoln and Adams counties. Winds have been fairly light...15 to
20 mph with gusts up to 30 mph. There is the threat of isolated
showers and thunderstorms to develop through the overnight
hours...but the main area of concern will be along the Cascades
and the Idaho Panhandle. /Nisbet
