Dangerous fire weather conditions expected today

GREAT FALLS -

A combination of very dry air and strong winds will create critical fire weather conditions across Montana on this Sunday.

The National Weather Service has issued a Fire Weather Warning for most of Montana in anticipation of these conditions.

STORMTracker meteorologist Mike Rawlins says relative humidity values will drop to as low as 15% during the late afternoon hours, just as wind speeds jump up to 20-30 mph.

This will make battling wildfires very difficult, and firefighters should be on high alert for rapidly changing conditions.

Showers and thunderstorms did bring some rain to some areas on Saturday evening, but that won't matter much today as the air becomes extremely dry.

Temperatures are expected to reach near 90° across central Montana, with most of eastern Montana climbing up to 100°.
