First Alert 48 Hour Forecast

Air Quality Alert: Smoke will continue to be a health concern through Friday.

Monsoon moisture has returned to parts of the region.   This means there will be a chance of isolated showers and thunderstorms each afternoon and evening into the weekend, but most of these will be confined to far southwest Montana near the Idaho and Wyoming borders. High temperatures will be in the 80s with lows in the upper 40s and 50s.

A cold front will enter the region Saturday.  It will increase our winds, which will further aggravate the fire scenario across the northern Rockies.  There is only a slight chance of showers and thunderstorms this weekend into early next week.  Temperatures are expected to gradually cool by early next week.
