FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR MONTANA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE GREAT FALLS MT
359 PM MDT WED AUG 31 2016

.DISCUSSION...

AN INCREASING UNSTABLE ATMOSPHERE WITH A WEAK DISTURBANCE WILL
ALLOW FOR A FEW ISOLATED TO WIDELY SCATTERED THUNDERSTORMS THIS
AFTERNOON AND EVENING. VERY DRY AIR AT THE SURFACE WILL ALLOW FOR
STRONG WINDS OVER 50 MPH FROM THESE STORMS. ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS
COULD THEN LINGER INTO THE EARLY OVERNIGHT HOURS. WARM AND DRY
CONDITIONS WILL CONTINUE FOR THURSDAY...WITH A FEW THUNDERSTORMS
POSSIBLE ACROSS THE SOUTH AND EAST. A STOUT COLD FRONT WILL BRING
INCREASE WINDS AND FIRE DANGER FOR FRIDAY. A FEW ISOLATED TO
SCATTERED SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WILL ALSO BE POSSIBLE ESPECIALLY
ACROSS THE ROCKY MOUNTAIN FRONT.
