AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION...UPDATED
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE BILLINGS MT
903 PM MDT WED JUL 29 2015

.UPDATE...
WHAT FEW CLOUDS WE HAVE HAD ACROSS THE NORTHERN TIER OF THE
FORECAST AREA ARE DISSIPATING. SHOULD BE A QUIET NIGHT. NO
SIGNIFICANT CHANGES MADE. LOOKS LIKE THE DOG DAYS OF SUMMER WILL
ARRIVE AS HOT AND DRY CONDITIONS ARE ON TAP. BT

&&

.SHORT TERM...VALID FOR THU AND FRI...

A QUIET WEATHER PATTERN FOR THE AREA THROUGH THIS WEEKEND. DRY
WEST TO NORTHWEST FLOW ALOFT WILL KEEP PRECIPITATION CHANCES OUT
OF THE FORECAST THE NEXT FEW DAYS. DOWNSLOPE WINDS WILL PUSH
TEMPERATURES INTO THE 90S EACH DAY. AFTERNOON WINDS WILL BE GUSTY
DURING THE HEAT OF THE DAY BUT WILL CALM DOWN BY EARLY EVENING.
RELATIVE HUMIDITIES WILL BE LOW THE NEXT FEW DAYS AND COMBINED
WITH THE HOT TEMPERATURES WILL INCREASE FIRE DANGERS ACROSS THE
AREA SO BE CAREFUL WITH ANY OUTDOOR BURNING. CHAMBERS

.LONG TERM...VALID FOR SAT...SUN...MON...TUE...WED...

LONG TERM PERIOD WILL START OFF WITH FAIRLY ZONAL TO WEST-
NORTHWESTERLY FLOW ALOFT. FURTHER UPSTREAM...RIDGE AXIS WILL
BEGIN AMPLIFYING IN RESPONSE TO A DEEPENING BRITISH COLUMBIA
UPPER LOW. FOR THIS WEEKEND THE AXIS WILL SHIFT EAST AND BUILDING
HEIGHTS AND WARMING TEMPERATURES ALOFT WILL EASILY ALLOW
TEMPERATURES TO CLIMB WELL ABOVE NORMAL FOR THIS TIME OF YEAR.
SATURDAY THROUGH MONDAY LOOK TO SEE THE WARMEST TEMPERATURES OF
THE EXTENDED WITH LOW TO MID 90S POSSIBLE ON THE PLAINS. ON
TUESDAY MONSOONAL MOISTURE COULD INFILTRATE THE FORECAST AREA
INCREASING CHANCES FOR SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS. THIS SHOULD BE
ENOUGH TO KEEP TEMPERATURES JUST ABOVE AVERAGE. DOBBS
