A RED FLAG (Fire Weather) WARNING is in effect for north-central Montana.  Just like yesterday, today will be very windy, especially on the Rocky Mountain Front.

As pressure builds slightly on Friday, the wind will calm down- but not for long.  This brief break from the wind will be followed by another windy day on Saturday, thanks to an upper-level disturbance in the atmosphere.

The weekend will remain dry, but by Monday, pop-up thunderstorms will be in the picture once again.  These will be very brief afternoon storms that will not cause very heavy precipitation.

A high-pressure ridge will build once again over Montana next week, bringing more hot and dry weather to end the month of July.

Have a great day!
