Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Wrn Montana and N Cntrl Idaho
National Weather Service Missoula MT
354 AM MDT Mon Jul 25 2016


.DISCUSSION...

Idaho: Today will be warmer with low humidity, and poor overnight
recoveries and thermal belts can be expected tonight. Storm
chances will increase on Tuesday and Wednesday mainly near the
Bitterroot NF, and a slight increase in moisture will keep
humidity from being quite as dry Tuesday afternoon through
Wednesday night. Overall, this week is still forecast to be warm
with little if any chance for precipitation. There is potential
for increased wind during this upcoming weekend, with a dry
weather system, so this will continue to be monitored.

Montana: Chances for thunderstorms return today along the
Continental Divide, otherwise, it will be a warm day with low
humidity in western Montana. Shower and thunderstorm chances
increase for much of western Montana on Tuesday, but highest
chances are to be in northwest Montana near the MT/Canadian
border. Thunderstorms are possible both Tuesday and Wednesday
along the Continental Divide. Humidity recoveries during the
middle of the week will not be as low as early this week in most
cases with a little increase in moisture with the passing
disturbances. The Beaverhead-Deerlodge NF is still expected to be
the driest of the region at least during the first half of the
week. The end of the week will be warm and dry, and we are
keeping an eye on the potential for increased wind during this
coming weekend.
