Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Wrn Montana and N Cntrl Idaho
National Weather Service Missoula MT
452 AM MDT Sat Aug 23 2014


.DISCUSSION...Wetting rains are expected for much of the Northern
Rockies today, especially over southwest Montana and Central
Idaho. The Continental Divide will see the heaviest and most
prolonged precipitation, lasting through late today. Although
Sunday will start out warmer and a touch drier, a weaker
secondary storm system will descend into the region and produce
additional showers by late in the day. Showers are then expected
to persist through early Monday before drying returns.

Drier conditions are in store for much of next week, with a
gradual return to normal temperatures and seasonal humidities.
This could be short-lived, however, as models continue to show
another possible weather disturbance for Labor Day weekend.
