FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR SCEN AND SERN MONTANA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE BILLINGS MT
350 AM MDT THU MAY 21 2015

.DISCUSSION...
WARMER TEMPERATURES EXPECTED TODAY AS SURFACE WINDS TREND TO
SOUTHEASTERLY WHICH WEAKENS THE UPSLOPE FLOW. FLOW ALOFT OVER THE
REGION IS WEAK AND ANY SHOWER ACTIVITY THAT DEVELOPS OVER THE
MOUNTAINS WILL REMAIN ON THE HIGHER TERRAIN. WILL SEE HUMIDITY
OVER EASTERN PARTS OF THE DISTRICT FALL TO NEAR 20 PERCENT WITH
WINDS REACHING 15 TO 20 MPH. FRIDAY WILL SEE AN INCREASE IN
MOISTURE OVER THE AREA WITH A BETTER CHANCE FOR SHOWERS AND
ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS. WEATHER WILL COOL OVER THE WEEKEND WITH
UNSETTLED CONDITIONS WITH SHOWERS ACROSS THE DISTRICTS BUT THE
MOST MOISTURE IS EXPECTED TO FALL OVER SOUTHEAST MONTANA. BORSUM
