MISSOULA — In August, we had five days where temperatures were at or over 100º and 16 days were over 90º, which means we've had about 21 days with extremely high heat.
These temperatures are above average by 10-to-20º for the season, and fall will feel more like summer as we enter the month of September.
Currently, the models are showing different times when we could see a cooler air mass push out the heat wave.
But either on Saturday or Sunday, we may cool down slightly just in time for Labor Day Weekend.
Fire weather will be a concern on Friday with light winds accompanying our dry conditions this week.
