Be careful with your outdoor activities this weekend and into early next week. NWS Missoula issued a Heat Advisory for Montana West of the divide starting noon Saturday through midnight on Tuesday.
Forecast highs will rise between 90°-105° and morning lows will only drop to the 60°-70° range for far western Montana. Butte morning lows could fall down into the 50's.
Record highs and record warm overnight lows are anticipated for western Montana this weekend into early next week.
The cumulative heat stress to humans and animals during such an extended period can be fatal if not mitigated!
Chief Meteorologist Mike Heard will update the weekend forecast tonight at 5:30pm and 10pm and look for updates on our facebook pages.
