First Alert 48 Hour Forecast

FIRE WEATHER WARNING 2 pm to 9 pm Saturday for our entire region. Wind gusts over 30 mph and isolated dry lightning will produce dangerous fire weather conditions.

Lake Wind Advisory 12 pm to 8 pm Saturday for Flathead Lake. 40 mph wind gusts are possible across the lake Saturday afternoon and evening, producing large waves.

Gusty winds and thunderstorms will continue through Saturday as a strong cold front moves in. Lows will be in the 50s overnight. A secondary cold front comes in Sunday which will actually give us a chance of rain! Rain totals, as in most cases this time of year, will be low. Highs Sunday will be in the 60s to upper 70s.

Cool weather continues but it will be dry early week with a chance for more showers late week.
