A HEAT ADVISORY has been issued for northwest Montana for Friday afternoon.
A few fires in western Montana and larger fires in other states west and south of Montana will contribute to smoky skies in portions of the state. A high-pressure ridge will give off sunny skies, hot temperatures, and will keep most of the state dry. The highs will climb into the 80s and 90s. A few stray showers may linger in areas along the mountains of the little belts and off of the Rocky Mountain Front and in northeast.
Tomorrow, a few isolated thunderstorms cannot be ruled out near the Continental Divide during the late afternoon/early evening. The system is expected to be minimal in coverage. The high temperatures will soar to the upper 80s and mid-90s.
Have a great day, and make sure you are drinking plenty of fluids!
