Fire Weather Planning Forecast for SCen and SErn Montana
National Weather Service Billings MT
335 AM MDT Wed Apr 25 2018

.DISCUSSION...
High pressure will prevail over the districts today and we expect
to see afternoon highs much warmer than yesterday. Minimum humidity
levels will be correspondingly lower with 20 to 35 percent
common. There is a fast moving cold front dropping south across
our region late today and this evening. This is expected to
produce some showers, mainly over the upslope areas of the
Beartooths and Pryors/Bighorns ranges...there may even be a little
thunder. Higher foothills and mountains could see a rain/snow mix
overnight. The system moves out quickly leaving another dry and
seasonal day for Thursday. Temps then warm into the 70s to lower
80s Friday and Saturday with RH readings in the upper teens and
20s. Look for unsettled conditions and a cooling trend for the
start of next week. BT
