FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR SCEN AND SERN MONTANA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE BILLINGS MT
421 AM MDT FRI APR 24 2015

.DISCUSSION...
A WEATHER SYSTEM MOVING INTO THE WESTERN UNITED STATES IS GOING TO
BRING A COUPLE ROUNDS OF PRECIPITATION TO THE DISTRICT THIS
WEEKEND. TODAY WILL SEE LIGHT WINDS WITH INCREASING CLOUDS WITH
SHOWER AND THUNDERSTORM ACTIVITY DEVELOPING OVER THE MOUNTAINS. AS
A COLD FRONT PUSHES INTO THE AREA TONIGHT THIS WILL INCREASE THE
AMOUNT OF SHOWERS AND SHIFT THE PRECIPITATION THROUGH THE PLAINS
REACHING SOUTHEAST MONTANA BY SATURDAY MORNING. RAINFALL AMOUNTS
FROM THIS SYSTEM WILL BE FROM .25 TO .50 INCHES. AFTER A DRY AND
COOLER SATURDAY ANOTHER ROUND OF PRECIPITATION WILL BEGIN
DEVELOPING SATURDAY NIGHT AND CONTINUE INTO SUNDAY WITH THE
GREATEST IMPACTS ALONG THE BEARTOOTH/ABSAROKA MOUNTAINS...THE BIG
HORN MOUNTAINS AND SOUTHERN PORTIONS OF SOUTHEAST MONTANA. THESE
AREAS COULD SEE ANOTHER .25 TO .50 INCHES OF MOISTURE WITH LESSER
AMOUNTS ELSEWHERE. THE WEATHER WILL QUICKLY CHANGE NEXT WEEK
BRINGING WARM AND DRY CONDITIONS. BORSUM
