First Alert 48 Hour Forecast

FIRE WEATHER WARNING Saturday for the East Lolo, Flathead and Kootenai National Forests.  Winds will gust up to 30 mph, causing an extreme fire danger.

 Sunday's forecast calls for partly to mostly sunny skies with highs in the 70s in Bozeman and Butte to the 80s in Missoula and Kalispell.  There is a chance of an afternoon shower along and south of I-90. Any thunderstorms will be relatively weak. The cooler temperatures on Sunday and higher humidity will help keep any new fires from spreading too quickly.

Monday will be warmer with temperatures near to slightly above the average high. Expect mostly sunshine. The rest of the week will bring a chance for scattered showers and thunderstorms and highs in the mid 80s to low 90s. This slightly cooler, more unsettled weather pattern runs into next weekend.
