MISSOULA — Air quality around Western Montana has been fluctuating between ‘unhealthy’ and ‘moderate’ for the last few days.
Therefore, Air Quality Alerts are still in effect for West-Central and Southwest Montana until further notice.
Air quality and particulates will be reassessed Wednesday morning at 9 AM.
A few storms are also brewing across the southwest.
Most storm activity stays along or below the I-90 corridor Tuesday through Thursday.
Storm activity will be a mix of wet and dry cells, so lightning is always a concern for new fire activity this time of year.
We need the rain from this monsoonal moisture, but we will need a steady, long-term rain rather than these short bursts of heavy showers within storms.
We stay dry to end the week, but storm activity returns for the end of the weekend.
