Statement as of 8:26 AM MDT on July 07, 2015

Expires 11:00 PM EDT on July 07, 2015


... Red flag warning in effect until 9 PM MDT this evening for
thunderstorms for fire weather zone 105...

The National Weather Service in Missoula has issued a red flag
warning... which is in effect until 9 PM MDT this evening.

* Thunderstorms: showers and isolated thunderstorms with
occasional lightning will move through northwest Montana this
morning. There may be a lull in thunderstorms in the late
morning... however thunderstorms are expected to increase in
coverage again early this afternoon. Although some storms may
produce wetting rains... given the extremely dry fuels any
lightning strikes outside of the main rain cores will present
concerns for fire starts. Thunderstorm activity is expected to
dissipate around sunset.

* Winds: erratic winds to around 40 mph are possible with storms.
In addition... breezy northeast to east winds will continue into
this evening.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A red flag warning means that critical fire weather conditions
are either occurring now... or will shortly. A combination of
strong winds... low relative humidity... and warm temperatures will
create explosive fire growth potential.
