Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Wrn Montana and N Cntrl Idaho
National Weather Service Missoula MT
451 AM MDT Thu Jun 29 2017


.DISCUSSION...

Idaho: A disturbance will continue to move through the region this
morning causing a few showers over Clearwater and Idaho counties. A
ridge of high pressure quickly builds over the area tonight into Friday
allowing for temperatures to climb to slightly above normal readings. A
quick moving disturbance breaks down the ridge on Saturday causing
breezy conditions with the potential of afternoon/evening showers and
thunderstorms. Westerly flow persists through the remainder of the
weekend into next week allowing for steady warming with afternoon
breeziness.

Montana: A disturbance will continue to move through the region this
morning causing a few showers over west central Montana. Afternoon
instability should allow for the development of isolated storms,
especially in the higher terrain. A ridge of high pressure quickly
builds over the area tonight into Friday allowing for temperatures to
climb to slightly above normal readings. A quick moving disturbance
breaks down the ridge on Saturday causing breezy conditions with the
potential of afternoon/evening showers and thunderstorms. The best
chance of convection on Saturday will be across southwest Montana.
Westerly flow persists through the remainder of the weekend into next
week allowing for steady warming with afternoon breeziness.
