First Alert 48 Hour Forecast

All will be quiet and smoke will continue to stream across the state from west to east Monday through Wednesday. Air quality will not be as bad as it was at the end of last week, but it will still be a concern for asthma sufferers. High temperatures will be in 70s with lows in the 40s.  

We are tracking midweek cold front that will bring a chance of rain mainly to northwest Montana. A stronger system arrives on Friday packing another punch of cool air and more rain. For now, Labor Day weekend looks like it will feel a lot like fall with highs in the 60s.
