Lemhi County Citizen Journalism

Monsoon moisture will advance northward by Thursday afternoon, a larger portion of western Montana will have a chance of dry lightning with little rain.

A few showers and thunderstorms are possible through Wednesday evening from Salmon, Idaho eastward to the Butte and Bozeman areas.  By Thursday evening there will be a chance as far north and west as Missoula and even a slight chance as far north as Kalispell.

Most of the rain will evaporate before reaching the ground, except under the strongest storms.  The best chance of rain reaching the ground will be along the border south of Butte and Bozeman.  

Otherwise, with fire danger very high to extreme, big concerns exist for lightning sparked fires along with gusty winds and very dry air.
