Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Wrn Montana and N Cntrl Idaho
National Weather Service Missoula MT
255 PM MDT Fri Aug 1 2014


.DISCUSSION...Monsoon moisture will continue to increase today and
through Saturday in north central Idaho and western Montana, which
will bring better chances for wetting rains out of thunderstorms.
The chance for widespread wetting rain through Saturday is not all
that high but many locations will have brief heavy rain. Warm
temperatures and low humidities are going to be common through the
weekend with little change in the weather pattern.

Model guidance are beginning to show a stronger wave of monsoon
moisture for early next week. Through confidence is still fairly
low a wave such as this has the potential to bring cooler
temperatures higher humidities and fairly widespread rains.
