Fire Weather Planning Forecast for SCen and SErn Montana
National Weather Service Billings MT
355 AM MDT Wed Oct 18 2017

.DISCUSSION...
Temperatures will be a little cooler today with slightly higher
humidity and less wind. Warmer temperatures and increasing winds
will return Thursday. Highs Thursday will be in the 70s, with
humidities in the teens and a breezy south to southwest wind. A
strong cold front will push in Friday. This front will generate
scattered showers and isolated thundestorms, along with producing
gusty northwest winds. There is potential for a strong wind event
for the western foothills Saturday night, and the entire area
Sunday. There is still some uncertainty on the extent of the wind
potential, but something we will be monitoring closely the next
several days. TWH
