With power not yet fully restored to all customers and debris still being cleaned up, western Montana be in for Round 2. Another Red Flag Warning has been issued by the National Weather Service for Tuesday afternoon and evening.

Parts of western, northwestern and west central Montana can expect potentially damaging weather again from 5:00 to 10:00 p.m. Gusty outflow winds are expected to develop with thunderstorms again. Winds in excess of 40-50 MPH will be possible, which could impact new wildfires in the area.

While heavy rains are not anticipated, frequent lightning will also be a threat, in addition to the gusty winds.

Stay safe my western Montana friends.  DB
