Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Wrn Montana and N Cntrl Idaho
National Weather Service Missoula MT
359 AM MDT Fri Jul 11 2014


.DISCUSSION...Mostly dry and hot conditions will persist today,
with the typical afternoon wind kicking up around 1500 and lasting
through later in the evening. A low-level northeasterly wind could be
present this morning, especially across forests of northwest
Montana, but should only last through late morning.

The chance for thunderstorms returns Saturday afternoon as
conditions become unstable in the afternoon and couple with
incoming moisture, mainly impacting southwest Montana districts.
Abundant lightning and gusty winds look to be the main impact from
any storms that do develop, though chances are still low at this time.
