Early Fire Update

It's very calm and 30 degrees this morning, not good weather to grow forest fires. Fires like it hot and windy. So far today, there's not even a smoke column, just a wispy layer of smoke hanging over the valley.

As long as it doesn't get too windy, there should be no big flare ups, but the Weather Service is predicting that a dry front will come through on Saturday and stir the winds up. For that reason, most of western Montana is on a fire watch. They're calling for cooler temperatures and rain next week.
