Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Wrn Montana and N Cntrl Idaho
National Weather Service Missoula MT
516 AM MDT Sun Jul 13 2014

.DISCUSSION...Hot, dry conditions will persist for one more day
across the Northern Rockies. But a change is on the way tomorrow
that will bring a return of precipitation to the area. However
the rain will come in the form of thunderstorms which will
certainly contain plenty of lightning. And although many storms
will be quite wet and very slow moving, this could indeed present
us with in mixed blessings given our recent prolonged dry spell.

Temperatures on Tuesday will be closer to normal than much of the
area has seen in several weeks. But only for one day as high
pressure is forecast to rebound and send temperatures soaring yet
again by mid week. Even cooler, in fact, near normal temperatures
are possible for more than a day by the end of this week into next
weekend.
