First Alert 48 Hour Forecast

FIRE WEATHER WARNING Saturday until 9 pm for the West Lolo, Kootenai and Flathead National Forests of northwest Montana.  Winds up to 15 mph and humidities ranging from 6 to 20 percent will bring a very high fire danger to the region.

Expect Sunday to be hotter overall than Saturday with highs from the middle 90s to the low 100s around the area. We will be close to breaking heat records in our western towns and cities Sunday afternoon.

A shift in the wind brings a wetter atmosphere to our region starting Monday. Shower chances will increase with the best days for showers and thunderstorms on Tuesday and Wednesday. Also on these days, a few strong thunderstorms could develop. Temperatures fall back into the 70s and 80s late in the week with more wet weather possible next weekend.
