Any fires that develop will likely spread rapidly and become very hard or impossible to control, NWS noted. High temperatures will reach the mid 50s today and low temperatures will drop to the mid 30s tonight. Sustained wind around 30 to 40 miles per hour is likely with isolated gusts reaching 90 miles per hour.

A second Vandal Alert notified students based in Coeur d'Alene of the Harbor Center's closure, due to a power outage. Travel could be hard, especially for high profile vehicles traveling on east to west roadways. Now by this time, drier air will be moving in, so precipitation will be much lighter, however, there is the chance for scattered snow showers to develop across all of western Montana this afternoon and evening. Peak wind gusts to 40 miles per hour will be possible. Thursday's forecast will be windy and colder, with a High Wind Warning in effect for the Front Range foothills.
