Weather Outlook

Elevated to possibly locally critical fire weather conditions are forecast in portions of the central and southern Plains today and Saturday while light offshore flow will continue over southern California. Strong westerly winds are likely over central and eastern Montana Saturday and early next week with very strong downslope winds possible across north-central Montana Monday. Windy and dry conditions are likely to return to portions of New Mexico and the southern Plains early next week as well. Additionally, dry and breezy conditions on the High Plains remain possible at times next week. Most of the southern US from California to Georgia and Florida will be dry for the next week with much above normal temperatures for southern California and the Southwest. A wet pattern will continue for much of the Pacific Northwest into the Idaho Panhandle and northwest Montana into early next week with flooding possible west of the Cascades in Washington. Showers with cool temperatures are also likely across the Great Lakes into the Northeast this weekend into early next week as well.
