National Weather Service Billings MT
352 AM MDT Wed Aug 16 2017

...Fire Weather Watch in effect from Thursday afternoon through
Thursday evening for portions of South Central Montana, all of Southeast
Montana, and portions of Northwest South Dakota...

.DISCUSSION...

Warmer and drier today with little in the way of cloud cover.
Minimal thunderstorm chance confined to the Beartooth/Absarokas
this afternoon. A cold front will push through the area Thursday
with northwesterly winds 15 to 20 mph and gusts to 30 mph during
the afternoon and evening. Gusty winds combined with humidity
values in the teens has prompted the issuance of a Fire Weather
Watch for Thursday afternoon and evening over most of our central
and eastern districts. Isolated showers and thunderstorms possible
over easternmost Montana during the late afternoon on Thursday.
Continued warm and dry weather through the week with another
possible frontal passage on Saturday. Walsh
