A FIRE WEATHER WATCH will go into effect tomorrow afternoon until Wednesday evening for most of NORTH CENTRAL, CENTRAL, and parts of SOUTHWEST Montana.

A weak high pressure and a westerly flow will keep today's temperatures warm, keep the conditions dry, and the skies clear. A weak disturbance may bring isolated thunderstorms over portions of southwest Montana during the late afternoon/early evening.

Tomorrow high pressure will amplify and warm the region back into the upper 80s and mid to low 90s. The region will remain dry, and the wind will increase, which will increase fire weather concerns.

Wednesday, an area of low pressure will bring in a chance for late storms to develop Wednesday night. A cold front will cool temperatures back to the 70s for northwest Montana, and the highs will stay in the mid to upper 90s for eastern Montana. The humidity will be low, and the wind will still howl across the state, which will yet again raise the fire concern. Late afternoon, a few passing storms cannot be ruled out as an airmass becomes unstable.

Have a great day,
