NWS-Missoula issues Red Flag Warning

National Weather Service-Missoula has issued a Red Flag Warning for Clearwater County, along with north central and northern Idaho, as well as western Montana. From 11 a.m. to midnight Tuesday for thunderstorms.

A mix of wet and dry storms will be capable of strong, gusty and erratic winds. They are expected to develop in a series of waves. The first wave is anticipated late Tuesday morning through early afternoon. A second waive is expected Tuesday evening.

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

A Red Flag Warning is intended to alert land managers to expected weather conditions that long with sufficient dry fuels will significantly increase fire danger.
