Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Wrn Montana and N Cntrl Idaho
National Weather Service Missoula MT
425 AM MDT TUE SEP 2 2014


.DISCUSSION...Westerly flow will be present with some clouds
streaming over northwest Montana today as temperatures warm
slightly compared to yesterday. Another dynamical system will
make its way through the Northern Rockies later tonight into
Wednesday causing breezy conditions. The best place for
precipitation will be north of the I-90 corridor. Storms will be
capable of producing moderate to heavy rain at times, especially
along the Canadian border. Temperatures are anticipated to drop to
well below normal once again. A ridge of high pressure will build
over the region for the later part of the week into the weekend
causing a warming and drying trend.
