Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Wrn Montana and N Cntrl Idaho
National Weather Service Missoula MT
254 PM MDT FRI AUG 29 2014


.DISCUSSION...A strong Pacific cold front will sweep across western
Montana and north central Idaho early Saturday morning, leading to
some early morning showers and thunderstorms. Saturday will be quite
windy across much of the area with mountain-top locations seeing
gusts to 35 mph at times. Some additional showers are likely across
southwest Montana during the afternoon. But, the wind and rain will
significantly decrease overnight. Sunday will be a bit nicer than
previously forecast, but will still feature a slight chance for
some afternoon showers and breezy winds. Monday now appears to be
the day with a better chance for afternoon showers. Each day will
remain cool with higher humidity values.

The rest of next week will be dominated by an unseasonably cool
upper-level trough, yielding cooler than normal temperatures and
slightly above normal humidity values.
