Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Wrn Montana and N Cntrl Idaho
National Weather Service Missoula MT
409 AM MDT THU AUG 28 2014

...Breezy winds Friday through Saturday...

.DISCUSSION...The ridge of high pressure will flatten slightly today
as a disturbance moves through western MT and north central ID.
The main result will be increased cloud cover, winds, and the
potential for a few showers, mainly across northwest MT and south
through the Beaverhead/Deerlodge this evening. Warming and drying
will occur for Friday with afternoon winds increasing ahead of a
cold front. Cold front passage will bring the strongest winds for
Saturday, with cooler temperatures and some showers.
