MISSOULA — A dry cold front will move across the region on Saturday providing critical fire conditions (warm, windy and dry).

Red Flag Warnings are in place - particularly for the late afternoon and evening hours.

The highs will top out in the 80s but drop into the mid to upper 60s Sunday with showers developing.

That’s all as a trough of low pressure approaches the region which will bring about a slightly greater drop in temp for Monday - especially along the Divide!

Expect scattered showers with highs in the upper 50s to mid-60s Monday - perhaps even some light, higher elevation snow?!

By Tuesday, we’ll see sunshine return with a breezy afternoon and highs back into the upper 70s to low 80s.

There looks to be a slight chance of showers on Wednesday with similar highs.
