FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR SCEN AND SERN MONTANA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE BILLINGS MT
319 AM MDT MON MAY 23 2016

.DISCUSSION...

WE ARE EXPECTING CONDITIONS TODAY FAIRLY SIMILAR TO SUNDAYS.
HIGHS SHOULD BE IN THE 60S TO AROUND 70 DEGREES WITH RH VALUES
THIS AFTERNOON RANGING FROM LOWER TO MID 20 PERCENTAGES OVER THE
SIOUX RANGER DISTRICT...TO OVER 40 PERCENT AROUND THE LOWER
ELEVATIONS OF THE GALLATIN. LOOK FOR WIDELY SCATTERED SHOWERS AND
THUNDERSTORMS TO DEVELOP THIS AFTERNOON...MAINLY OVER AND NEAR
HIGHER TERRAIN. SOMEWHAT MORE ROBUST THUNDERSTORMS ARE POSSIBLE BY
TUESDAY EVENING FROM THE BIGHORNS TO SOUTHEAST MONTANA WITH GARDEN
VARIETY SCATTERED ELSEWHERE. RH VALUES WILL BE A LITTLE HIGHER
THAN TODAYS FOR TUESDAY AFTERNOON. OVERNIGHT RH RECOVERIES SHOULD
BE QUITE GOOD. LOOK FOR A BIT WARMER CONDITIONS LATER IN THE WORK
WEEK WITH A CONTINUED CHANCE OF MAINLY LATE DAY SHOWERS AND
THUNDER. BT
