FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR SCEN AND SERN MONTANA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE BILLINGS MT
330 AM MDT WED AUG 24 2016

.DISCUSSION...
A REINFORCING SHOT OF COOLER AIR WAS WORKING THROUGH SOUTHERN
MONTANA EARLY THIS MORNING. THIS WILL PROVIDE AN UNSEASONABLY COOL
DAY FOR LATE AUGUST...WITH HIGH TEMPERATURES HELD IN THE MID TO
UPPER 60S. UPSLOPE FLOW WILL GENERATE A FEW SHOWERS AND
THUNDESTORMS THIS AFTERNOON AND EVENING. THIS ACTIVITY SHOULD BE
MAINLY CONFINED TO THE MOUNTAINS AND FOOTHILLS. WINDS WILL REMAIN
GUSTY TODAY...ESPECIALLY OVER THE EAST. HUMIDITIES WILL BE MUCH
HIGHER THAN THE LAST COUPLE OF DAYS...WITH MINIMUMS IN THE 30S.
THURSDAY WILL HAVE LESS WIND AND REMAIN UNSEASONABLY COOL WITH
HIGH TEMPERATURES ONLY REACHING THE LOWER 70S. THE CHANCE FOR
PRECIPITATION ON THURSDAY WILL REMAIN LOW AND MAINLY OVER SOUTHERN
LOCATIONS. FRIDAY WILL STAY COOL BUT A WARMUP IS EXPECTED OVER THE
WEEKEND. TWH
