FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR SCEN AND SERN MONTANA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE BILLINGS MT
1044 AM MDT THU APR 17 2014

UPDATED TO ADJUST PRECIPITATION CHANCES FOR TODAY.

.DISCUSSION...
SCATTERED LIGHT SHOWERS WILL LINGER ACROSS EASTERN PORTIONS OF
CUSTER COUNTY...THE ASHLAND RANGER DISTRICT AND THE SIOUX RANGER
DISTRICT THROUGH THE AFTERNOON AS A WEATHER SYSTEM EXITS THE
REGION. OTHERWISE...EXPECT DECREASING CLOUDS ACROSS THE FIRE
DISTRICTS WITH EASTERLY WINDS TURNING WESTERLY THROUGH THE DAY.
ANOTHER FAST MOVING WEATHER SYSTEM WILL SWEEP ACROSS THE REGION
FRIDAY. THIS SYSTEM WILL PRODUCE A CHANCE OF SHOWERS FOR MOST
LOCATIONS...AS WELL AS A SLIGHT THREAT OF LIGHTNING FROM NORTHERN
WYOMING INTO THE SIOUX RANGER DISTRICT BY FRIDAY EVENING. LOOK FOR
A WARMING TREND THE NEXT FEW DAYS WHICH WILL CONTINUE INTO THE
WEEKEND. ARTHUR
