Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Wrn Montana and N Cntrl Idaho
National Weather Service Missoula MT
415 AM MDT FRI MAY 22 2015


.DISCUSSION...

Idaho: Afternoon showers and thunderstorms are expected to develop
again today, in much of the same areas as yesterday. Simulated
cloud forecast products do indicate less clouds early in the day
than compared to yesterday, so the coverage of storms today could
be more than yesterday. Brief heavy rain, gusty erratic winds, and
occasional lightning will be the main impacts from these
thunderstorms.

Montana: Showers and thunderstorms are expected to develop once
again this afternoon and evening. Much of the same areas that saw
the convection yesterday will likely see them again today. The
most likely locations will be along and south of the I-90
corridor. Brief heavy rain, gusty erratic winds, and occasional
lightning will be the main impacts from these thunderstorms.
Northwest Montana will miss out on any shower activity, and will
see increasing ENE winds this afternoon.

Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Wrn Montana and N Cntrl Idaho
National Weather Service Missoula MT
354 AM MDT WED MAY 20 2015


.DISCUSSION...

Idaho: Much of central Idaho will see slightly warmer temperatures
today with another chance for showers and thunderstorms across
southern Idaho County. The main threat from these thunderstorms
will be the occasional lightning strike, as well as heavy rain and
gusty erratic winds. Elsewhere across central Idaho, mainly partly
cloudy skies can be expected.

Montana: The persistent easterly gradient will continue to weaken
today allowing the easterly winds to relax a bit from what we have
seen the past few days. We will also see warmer temperatures and
slightly drier conditions today, with all shower development
staying west of the region in Idaho. We will see more widespread
shower and thunderstorm development Thursday afternoon and
evening.
