FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR MONTANA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE GREAT FALLS MT
344 AM MDT SAT MAY 30 2015

...STRONG THUNDERSTORMS POSSIBLE TODAY...
...CHANCE OF SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS EACH DAY THROUGH THE
WORKWEEK...

.DISCUSSION...
A WEAK DISTURBANCE IN THE WESTERLY FLOW ALOFT WILL COMBINE WITH
INCREASING INSTABILITY AND DEEP MOISTURE TO BRING SCATTERED TO
NUMEROUS SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS TO THE DISTRICTS THIS AFTERNOON
AND EVENING. SOME STORMS MAY PRODUCE BRIEF HEAVY RAIN...GUSTY
WINDS...AND SMALL HAIL. DAYTIME HEATING WILL THEN BRING ANOTHER
CHANCE OF STORMS TO THE AREA ON SUNDAY...MAINLY NEAR MOUNTAINS.
TEMPERATURES WILL BE 5 TO 10 DEGREES ABOVE NORMAL. STORMS TODAY
WILL KEEP MINIMUM HUMIDITIES IN THE 45 TO 55 PERCENT RANGE...BUT
WARMER TEMPERATURES ON SUNDAY WILL CAUSE HUMIDITIES TO FALL INTO
THE 30 TO 40 PERCENT RANGE.  COULSTON

EXTENDED DISCUSSION...
A BROAD UPPER LEVEL TROUGH OF LOW PRESSURE WILL THEN MOVE INTO THE
PACIFIC NORTHWEST AND MONTANA BEGINNING ON MONDAY AND LINGERING
OVER THE AREA THROUGH THE WORKWEEK. THIS WILL KEEP AT LEAST A
CHANCE OF SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS OVER THE FIRE DISTRICTS
THROUGH THIS PERIOD.  COULSTON
