A FIRE WEATHER WATCH has been issued for most of central Montana for TOMORROW afternoon and evening.

An upper-level disturbance will bring another round of scattered showers and thunderstorms.

As a cold front moves through our area late afternoon/early evening, some cells could become strong to severe.

For now the system shows a marginal risk for storms, meaning; isolated severe thunderstorms are possible. The system can produce gusty winds, frequent lightning, and hail. The highs will stay in the upper 80s and mid to low 90s.

Today's passing cold front will cool off the temperatures tomorrow. The high temps for tomorrow will drop nearly 10 to 15 degrees in some areas. The conditions will be dry, and the wind will increase. With all that in mind, fire concerns will increase.

Dry and breezy conditions can are expected into the weekend.

Always remember, if working outside, make sure you take breaks, drink plenty of water, try to minimize sun exposure, and finally NEVER leave children, disabled adults or pets in a parked car.

Have a great day,
