Western Montana Gets a Red Flag Warning

The National Weather Service has issued a Red Flag Warning, effective Thursday, August 2, from noon until at least 10:00 p.m. The warning area includes the Bitterroot Valley.

A dry cold front will bring increasing west winds and extremely low humidity tomorrow afternoon and evening. Western Montana is expecting sustained winds near 20 miles per hours, gusting into the 30s in some areas at times.

The official word from the National Weather Service:

* Impacts: A dry cold front will bring increasing westerly winds
and low relative humidity values Thursday afternoon continuing
through the evening hours.

* Winds: Sustained 15 to 20 mph with gusts to near 35 mph.

* Minimum humidities: 10 to 20 percent.

Many of the region’s fire zones from Glacier Park to Hamilton and beyond could be affected. With as much carelessness as we’ve seen with abandoned campfires in the last couple weeks, here’s hoping everybody will do their part, as well as keep an eye on the stupid ones who won’t.  We’ve been pretty lucky so far this summer, but we ain’t home yet!
