Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Wrn Montana and N Cntrl Idaho
National Weather Service Missoula MT
451 AM MDT Mon Jun 26 2017


.DISCUSSION...

Idaho: An approaching system will cause the upper level flow to become
southwesterly today causing temperatures to warm well above normal for
this time of year, potentially the warmest temperatures this year. That
approaching system will move into the region later this
afternoon/evening kicking off showers and thunderstorms. The dry low
levels will create conditions favorable for gusty and erratic winds near
the storms. By the evening, the threat becomes brief heavy rain, hail
and strong winds. A few storms could linger into Tuesday as
temperatures become seasonal. Northwesterly flow persist through the
latter part of the week keeping temperatures seasonal with a minor
threat of shower activity.
