FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR WRN MONTANA AND N CNTRL IDAHO
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE MISSOULA MT
447 AM MDT TUE SEP 16 2014

.DISCUSSION...HOT AND DRY CONDITIONS WILL BE IN PLACE FOR THE
NEXT TWO DAYS AS HIGH PRESSURE DOMINATES OVER THE REGION. THERE
WILL BE AN OUTSIDE CHANCE FOR A SHOWER OR THUNDERSTORM ACROSS
CENTRAL IDAHO AND SOUTHWEST MONTANA EACH DAY. BUT THIS ACTIVITY
WILL AMOUNT TO LITTLE MORE THAN TRACE AMOUNTS OF PRECIPITATION. THE
HOTTEST AND DRIEST DAY OF THE WEEK WILL BE ON WEDNESDAY AS THE
RIDGE STARTS TO BREAK DOWN. THURSDAY WILL BRING BETTER CHANCES FOR
PRECIPITATION AREA WIDE WITH SOUTHWEST MONTANA SEEING THE GREATEST
CHANCE FOR A WETTING RAINFALL IN ADVANCE OF AN APPROACHING COLD
FRONT.
