It’s one of the last weekends of summer and warm temperatures will come with thunderstorms, wind, some fire danger, cleaner air and generally pretty nice weather.  Wildfires in Washington, Oregon and California have grown significantly over the last several days which resulted in more smoke moving across Big Sky.  A cold front will not only bring in cleaner air to Montana over the weekend, but some rain will fall on those larger fires in neighboring states to our west.  Hopefully this will decrease the fire activity there.  In Montana, scattered storms will move through Saturday morning and afternoon.  It will be a warm and windy day with highs in the 80s.  Fire danger will be high with the possibility of lightning and gusty wind.  However, it will also be very nice through most of the day outside of those few thunderstorms.  Sunday will be a great late summer’s day as well with highs in the 70s to near 80 under partly cloudy skies and less wind.  Warm temperatures will continue early next week before a cooler stretch with much needed rain showers are possible toward the middle of the week.  Enjoy it while we can!

Have a great weekend,
