Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Wrn Montana and N Cntrl Idaho
National Weather Service Missoula MT
241 PM MDT Fri Aug 22 2014

.DISCUSSION...Over the next 24 hours most areas across the western
Montana and north central Idaho fire weather planning forecast
area will receive a wetting rainfall. Those nearer to the
Continental Divide will see the heaviest and most prolonged
precipitation, lasting well into Saturday before tapering off.
Although Sunday will briefly be warmer and a touch drier, a weaker
secondary storm system will decent into the region produce
additional rain showers and higher humidity. By the middle of next
week we could return to near normal temperatures with drier
conditions. However this could be short lived as models continue
to show yet another strong storm system possible for Labor Day
weekend.
