NWS-Missoula issues Fire Weather Watch

National Weather Service-Missoula has issued a Fire Weather Watch for Clearwater/Nez Perce and Palouse/Hells Canyon from Tuesday afternoon through Tuesday evening.

Thunderstorms with a mix of wet and dry storms will be capable of strong gusty, erratic winds. They are forecast to develop Tuesday afternoon and last through much of the evening.

Abundant lightning with the storms and dry fuels will promote new fire starts. Gusty winds in the vicinity of the thunderstorms will aid in the rapid spread of any new and existing fires.

A Fire Weather Watch means that critical fire weather conditions are forecast to occur. Watch for later forecasts and possible Red Flag Warnings.
