Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Wrn Montana and N Cntrl Idaho
National Weather Service Missoula MT
249 PM MDT SUN AUG 31 2014


.DISCUSSION...Northwest flow will bring near normal temperatures
and isolated mountain showers and thunderstorms for the next few
days. Afternoon humidity will be in the 20s and low 30s most days
with breezy conditions in the afternoons. The next big change is
coming Wednesday when another cold front will impact the northern
Rockies. This system doesn`t have a lot of moisture with it, so a
widespread wetting rain is not expected. Expect mainly just
showers and gusty winds.
