Fire Weather Planning Forecast for SCen and SErn Montana
National Weather Service Billings MT
339 AM MDT Mon Apr 23 2018

.DISCUSSION...
We start out the work week with a weather system moving directly
over the districts today producing a good deal of widespread
rainfall/wet snow and higher elevation snowfall. Liquid
precipitation from five tenths to an inch will be common across
the area. Temperatures will be well below normal. The system
moves out by Tuesday morning. Look for a warming trend then the
rest of the week. We may see some showers though Wednesday night
when a fast moving weather system from the northwest sweeps
through. Afternoon highs will be back well into the 70s by the
latter part of the week with afternoon humidity in the 20-30
percent range. BT
