FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR MONTANA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE GREAT FALLS MT
257 PM MDT MON AUG 3 2015

...MIX OF WET AND DRY THUNDERSTORMS WITH GUSTY ERRATIC WINDS
THROUGH TUESDAY...
...BREEZY SOUTHEAST WINDS TO SHIFT MORE WESTERLY LATE TONIGHT
THROUGH TUESDAY...

.DISCUSSION...
SCATTERED SHOWERS WITH A MIX OF WET AND DRY THUNDERSTORMS WILL
SPREAD OVER THE FIRE DISTRICTS THROUGH TUESDAY. THE STRONGER AND
DRIER STORMS MAY PRODUCE GUSTY ERRATIC WINDS AND WILL INCREASE
THE POTENTIAL FOR NEW FIRE STARTS. BREEZY SOUTHEAST WINDS WILL
ALSO SHIFT MORE WESTERLY BEHIND A COLD FRONT ON TUESDAY...WITH
GUSTS TO 40 MPH POSSIBLE ALONG THE ROCKY MOUNTAIN FRONT. STORMS
WILL DIMINISH TUESDAY NIGHT...BUT ANOTHER WEAK DISTURBANCE WILL
BRING CHANCE FOR STORMS TO THE SOUTHERN DISTRICTS ON WEDNESDAY.
SLIGHTLY COOLER THAN NORMAL TEMPERATURES WILL KEEP AFTERNOON
HUMIDITIES GENERALLY ABOVE 20 PERCENT WITH GOOD OVERNIGHT
RECOVERY. COULSTON
