Fire Weather Planning Forecast for SCen and SErn Montana
National Weather Service Billings MT
354 AM MDT Wed Jun 28 2017

.DISCUSSION...
...Thunderstorms today and Thursday then Warming Trend...
Upper level low pressure over southern Canada is forecast to move
into northeast Montana and then east into the Dakotas the next two
days. This will keep unsettled weather over the region with below
normal temperatures though humidity minimums could approach 20
percent. Storms should be wetter today and the stronger storms
could produce small hail and a wind gust to 50 mph. Thursday will
see fewer storms mainly favoring the southern portion of the
district. A drying and warming trend starts Friday with very hot
weather expected early next week. borsum
