Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Wrn Montana and N Cntrl Idaho

355 AM MDT Thu Jul 10 2014


.DISCUSSION...The warm and hot temperatures will continue for the
rest of the week and into the weekend. Temperatures may even get
hotter this weekend than we have been seeing, with a moderate ridge
building over the Northern Rockies Saturday, thus creating poor RH
recoveries for the mid slopes and ridge tops. A relief in terms of
hot temperatures are possible next week, with an increase of
moisture in the form of scattered thunderstorms, though widespread wetting
rains are not expected. The biggest threat will be lightning and
winds, but confidence is low at this time.
