FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR NORTH CENTRAL MONTANA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE GREAT FALLS MT
523 AM MDT THU MAR 26 2015

...DRY AND UNSEASONABLY WARM FRIDAY WITH BREEZY WEST WINDS...
...STRONG WINDS LIKELY SATURDAY BUT WITH COOLER AND MORE MOIST
CONDITIONS...

.DISCUSSION...
SCATTERED SHOWERS OVER THE MOUNTAINS OF WESTERN AND CENTRAL
MONTANA WILL DIMINISH THROUGHOUT THE DAY AS HIGH PRESSURE ALOFT
BUILDS OVER THE FIRE DISTRICTS. THE HIGH PRESSURE WILL KEEP THE
AREA DRY ON FRIDAY WITH UNSEASONABLY WARM TEMPERATURES. WINDS WILL
BE BREEZY AT TIMES OUT OF THE WEST THROUGH THE PERIOD...ESPECIALLY
ALONG THE ROCKY MOUNTAIN FRONT. AFTERNOON RELATIVE HUMIDITIES
WILL MOSTLY FALL INTO THE 25 TO 35 PERCENT RANGE TODAY...BUT THEN
INTO THE 15 TO 25 PERCENT RANGE AT LOWER ELEVATIONS ON FRIDAY.
COULSTON

EXTENDED DISCUSSION...
A COLD FRONT IS STILL ON TRACK TO MOVE THROUGH THE AREA ON
SATURDAY...WHICH WILL CAUSE WESTERLY WINDS TO INCREASE
SIGNIFICANTLY ACROSS MOST OF THE AREA. WIDESPREAD SUSTAINED WINDS
OF 20 TO 30 MPH ARE LIKELY WITH GUSTS UP TO 45 MPH AT TIMES. GUSTS
COULD EXCEED 60 MPH AT TIMES ALONG THE ROCKY MOUNTAIN FRONT.
HOWEVER...WILL BE HOLDING OFF ON FIRE WEATHER HIGHLIGHTS AT THIS
TIME...AS COOLER AIR BEHIND THE FRONT WILL ALLOW RELATIVE
HUMIDITIES TO ONLY FALL INTO THE 25 TO 35 PERCENT RANGE FOR MOST OF
THE AREA. THIS SITUATION WILL CONTINUE TO BE MONITORED.
