Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Northeast Montana
National Weather Service Glasgow MT
843 AM MDT Thu Jun 22 2017

.DISCUSSION...

UPDATE: Near critical fire weather conditions seem to be more
likely today in the southernmost zones, stretching from Petroleum
to Wibaux Counties.

Previous Discussion: A low pressure system in central Canada will
produce cool but windy weather across the region today. Near
critical fire weather conditions are possible but the potential
for showers in the afternoon should produce a rise in relative
humidity and mitigate some of the concern.
