Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Billings MT 330 PM MDT Wed Aug 12 2020

DISCUSSION.

Tonight through Friday Night .

Although morning clouds kept temperatures down somewhat to start the day, afternoon sun, strong ridging and pre-frontal warming have allowed readings to climb into the 90s across the forecast area. In addition, humidities have dropped into the lower to middle teens with winds in the 15 to 25 mph range for most areas with some higher gusts along the Beartooth/Absaroka Foothills.

Tonight . A cold front will move across the forecast area mid to late evening allowing for a wind shift to the north. An isolated thunderstorm remains possible this afternoon and evening ahead of and along the front. All the above has resulted in critical fire weather conditions. As a result, a Red Flag Warning continues across the area until midnight.

Thursday & Friday . An upper trough will move across the forecast area Thursday with jet stream dynamics overhead. The flow will turn easterly during the afternoon which will increase low level moisture. This will result in better chances for scattered showers and thunderstorms for most locations, which will linger across our eastern areas toward the Dakota borders Thursday evening. Highs Thursday will be about 10 to 15 degrees cooler than today. A dry, northwest flow aloft will prevail on Friday. Temperatures will be seasonal Friday with middle 80s for most locations. Hooley

Saturday through Wednesday .

Strong ridging will build into the area Saturday that will dominate the area into the middle of next week. Due to this, conditions will remain hot and dry through the extended forecast. There is weak energy that will pass over the area on Tuesday that could bring some weak shower activity over the mountains and higher terrains.

High temperatures will remain in the upper 80s to low 90s through Sunday before warming into the mid 90s Monday through Wednesday.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerous of sources and is presented automatically. It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
