Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Wrn Montana and N Cntrl Idaho
National Weather Service Missoula MT
444 AM MDT Mon Jul 14 2014

.DISCUSSION...Widespread thunderstorms will develop today across
the Northern Rockies. And although these storms are likely to
possess frequent lightning, atmospheric moisture conditions should
support a good wetting rain from many of these storms. Some could
have brief heavy rain and result in a localized flash flooding
threat. The convective activity will steadily decrease overnight
with cooler temperatures expected on Tuesday. But some additional
storms are again possible across zones 108-111 Tuesday afternoon,
also with a threat for brief heavy rain.

Hot and dry conditions will return on Wednesday and Thursday as
high pressure quickly rebounds. But models are starting to come
into better agreement regarding a cool down to more normal
temperatures by the weekend.
