A HEAT ADVISORY has been issued for Hill, Chouteau, Blaine, and Fergus Counties until 8 pm.
AN EXCESSIVE HEAT WARNING has been issued for eastern Montana until 9 pm.
A RED FLAG WARNING has been issued for most of the state until Wednesday.
A LAKE WIND ADVISORY has been issued for Fort Peck Lake until 6 pm.

On Tuesday continued heat will send the temperatures soaring and records falling. The high temperatures will climb into the 90s and triple digits. A cold front moving in off the Pacific will ramp up the wind for the state, and bring the potential for scattered showers and thunderstorm activity into northwest and portions of northcentral Montana. The combination of hot temperatures, windy conditions, and low relative humidity, has prompted the The National Weather Service to issue a Red Flag Warning for much of the state.

Wednesday will be mainly dry, sunny, and windy to breezy. The passage of Tuesday's front will cool daytime highs into the 70s and 80s.

Thursday and Friday expect more sunshine, highs trending again in the 70s and 80s, and dry conditions.

Have a great day.
