Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Wrn Montana and N Cntrl Idaho
National Weather Service Missoula MT
151 PM MDT SAT AUG 30 2014

.DISCUSSION...Winds areawide will remain gusty through early this
evening before slowly subsiding as the atmosphere stabilizes
overnight. However, ridge tops are likely to remain breezy into
Sunday. Winds on Sunday will be a touch less than today, though
still gusty during the afternoon. There will also be a chance for
some areas to see light showers overnight with a few producing wetting
rain. Afternoon showers will likely remain locked to the terrain
with little falling in the valleys. A few showers are possible
across northwest Montana Monday, but overall much of the area will
be drying out and starting to warm.

This warming trend appears to be brief as another large upper
level trough will be bring another chance for some precipitation,
along with another round of unseasonably cool conditions that may
last into next weekend.
