FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR NORTHEAST MONTANA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE GLASGOW MT
240 PM MDT FRI AUG 28 2015

...VERY HOT AND DRY CONDITIONS EXPECTED FOR SATURDAY...

.DISCUSSION...
AFTER A NIGHT OF POOR HUMIDITY RECOVERY FOR SOME PLACES TONIGHT...
ELEVATED FIRE WEATHER CONCERNS EXIST ACROSS NORTHEAST MONTANA
SATURDAY WITH HIGH TEMPERATURES NEAR 100 DEGREES ALONG WITH VERY
LOW RELATIVE HUMIDITY. LIGHT SOUTH WINDS APPEAR TO BE THE ONLY
LIMITING FACTOR AT THIS TIME. A COLD FRONT CROSSES THE AREA SUNDAY
TO BRING A CHANCE FOR A SHOWER OR THUNDERSTORM. OTHERWISE THE
BIGGEST EFFECT WILL BE A SLIGHTLY COOLER AIR MASS THAT MOVES IN.
