National Weather Service Missoula MT
329 AM MDT Sat Jun 19 2021


.DISCUSSION...

Idaho: Warm and dry conditions will continue today. Flow shifts to the
northwest today, slightly increasing relative humidity while keeping
daytime high temperatures above normal. Winds pick up in the afternoon,
primarily out of the northwest and west. Sunday will see further
increases in relative humidity as a shortwave trough drops into
northwest Montana from Canada. This feature will bring a slight chance
for rain to the northern Clearwater National Forest. The chance for a
wetting rain will be minimal. Expect more warm, dry weather through
Tuesday.


Montana: Warm and dry conditions will continue today. Flow shifts to
the northwest, slightly increasing relative humidity. Daytime high
temperatures remain above normal. Despite the rebound in humidity, the
Beaverhead-Deerlodge National Forest will still be experiencing
heightened fire weather conditions with humidity in the teens and gusty
northwest winds to about 30 mph. On Sunday, a shortwave trough drops
down from Canada. This feature will bring rain showers to much of
western Montana, favoring the Mission and Swan Ranges, as well as the
Glacier Park region. Glacier Park will also have a slight chance for
thunderstorms, especially along the Continental Divide. Expect a return
to warm, dry weather for Monday and Tuesday.
