Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Montana
National Weather Service Great Falls MT
340 AM MDT Thu Jun 22 2017

.DISCUSSION...

Generally cooler than normal temperatures are expected through
Saturday along with at least isolated to widely scattered showers.
Breezy conditions will develop this afternoon across zones
113/115/117, but cooler temps and somewhat higher min RH values
may tend to limit fire concerns in those areas. A drying and
warming trend then begins on Sunday and continues into early next
week. MARTIN
