Some slight amplification of an upper ridge is possible across the
northern Rockies on Saturday, in the wake of an upper trough moving
east-southeastward toward the Great Lakes vicinity. At the surface,
an area of low pressure will move from the upper Midwest into the
eastern Great Lakes region, with dry northwesterly flow persisting
across much of the northern High Plains.

...Eastern Montana into the Western Dakotas...
Elevated conditions will again be possible across portions of
eastern MT into the western Dakotas on Saturday, as a dry
post-frontal airmass persists over much of the northern Rockies/High
Plains and west-northwesterly flow continues. Locally critical
conditions will be possible; however, with a tendency for the
strongest winds to become increasingly displaced to the north and
east of areas with the lowest RH and driest fuels, confidence is too
low for any critical upgrade at this time.
