National Weather Service Glasgow MT
251 PM MDT Thu Jun 22 2017

.DISCUSSION...

...NEAR CRITICAL FIRE WEATHER CONDITIONS STILL LIKELY FOR FIRE
WEATHER ZONES 122 AND 137 THROUGH THIS EVENING...

The low pressure system diving into Montana will push through the
region tonight and bring light showers across the region, which
will end during the overnight hours. This will be followed by a
return to dry conditions for the weekend. Winds will be weaker
behind the front, and with minimum RH values generally ranging
from 20-30%, concerns for critical conditions for the weekend will
be relatively low.
