Spot Forecast for Crab
National Weather Service Missoula MT
546 PM MDT Sat Aug 24 2019

Forecast is based on forecast start time of 0600 PDT on August 25.
If conditions become unrepresentative...contact the National Weather
Service.

.DISCUSSION...Gusty winds are expected to start a little earlier
today as compared to Saturday. However, overall the atmosphere will
be cooler and thus a bit more moist despite the breeziness. Light
winds will keep the temperature up a bit Sunday night and this will
help temperature rise a few degrees on Monday.

Weather conditions for the rest of the week largely support diurnal
winds and temperatures rising a few degrees above normal. Remnant
moisture from Tropical Storm Ivo is forecast to pass over the fire
on Thursday and thus there is a slight chance for showers and
thunderstorms.
