Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Wrn Montana and N Cntrl Idaho
National Weather Service Missoula MT
340 AM MDT Thu Jun 22 2017


.DISCUSSION...

Idaho: Sunny skies and dry conditions are anticipated today under
northwest flow aloft. Wind will become breezy from the northwest to
north this afternoon. Warm and dry conditions will continue into much of
next week as a ridge strengthens over the area. Monday currently looks
like the warmest day. The ridge weakens by Tuesday, cooling temperatures
and bringing the potential for showers and thunderstorms.

Montana: Northwest flow aloft will bring warm and sunny conditions
today. The one exception is along the Continental Divide near Glacier
NP, where a passing disturbance will bring cloud and potential showers
this afternoon. Expect to see some breezy north to northwest winds this
afternoon as well. Similar conditions will continue into Saturday,
followed by a warming trend early next week as high pressure
strengthens.
