Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Wrn Montana and N Cntrl Idaho
National Weather Service Missoula MT
248 PM MDT Sun Jul 27 2014


.DISCUSSION...A ridge of high pressure will be the dominant
feature over the Northern Rockies the coming week.  Some
monsoonal moisture will move into the region later tonight
through Tuesday, causing a few high-based showers and
thunderstorms, particularly across North-Central Idaho and
Southwest Montana. Thermal belts are anticipated to remain each
night, causing minimal recoveries on the mid slopes. The ridge axis
shifts slightly to the east towards the end of the week which will
allow more moisture to stream into the area and leading to increasing
chances of afternoon/evening thunderstorms by the weekend.
