The National Weather Service in Great Falls has issued a red flag

behavior and an increased risk of new fire starts.

in north central Montana, fire weather zones 112 and 114.

* Counties affected:

strong winds, low relative humidity, and warm temperatures can
contribute to extreme fire behavior.

areas of this red flag warning.
