Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Wrn Montana and N Cntrl Idaho
National Weather Service Missoula MT
427 AM MDT Mon Apr 24 2017


.DISCUSSION...

Little change has been observed to the cool and showery forecast for
this week. There will again be breaks between shower activity today and
Tuesday, and each round of showers will bring high chances for
measurable rain, but only select locations will have wetting rains. This
changes on Wednesday when persistent and widespread precipitation
brings high chances for wetting rains. The driest day of the forecast
currently appears to be on Saturday, but even this day currently looks
to have cloud cover and at least a few showers.
