OVER WESTERN AND CENTRAL MONTANA WHERE VISIBILITY WAS REDUCED TO
LESS THAN 2 MILES AT TIMES. WINDS WERE GENERALLY LIGHT...BUT
SOUTHWEST WINDS OF 10 TO 20 MPH WERE COMMON ALONG THE EAST SLOPES OF
THE ROCKIES.

AT 4 PM...TEMPERATURES HAD WARMED MOSTLY INTO THE 80S TO LOWER
90S...RANGING FROM 73 IN WEST YELLOWSTONE TO 92 IN MILES CITY AND
PLAINS.

THE SCATTERED THUNDERSTORMS MAY SPREAD INTO EASTERN MONTANA DURING

THE WESTERN VALLEYS. SMOKE WILL ALSO CONTINUE TO REDUCE AIR QUALITY
ACROSS THE STATE.
