Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Wrn Montana and N Cntrl Idaho
National Weather Service Missoula MT
439 AM MDT SUN SEP 21 2014

.DISCUSSION...

High pressure will continue to be present over much of the
Northern Rockies through the middle of this coming week. One major
exception to the this warm and dry scenario will be in the form of
remnant moisture from tropical system Odile traversing central
Idaho on Monday. Southwest Montana forests have the highest
likelihood of receiving wetting rain relative to the rest of the
region. Very warm temperatures, both day and night, will be
present through Thursday. Overnight humidity recovery will be
expectionally poor on high terrain during this time. Winds will
become gusty from the south at times on Wednesday and Thursday.

A cold front and widespread precipitation is anticipated to arrive
late Thursday, with cool temperatures and occasional showers
developing through next weekend.
