Wildfire smoke has absolutely saturated the state of Montana. Missoula, Butte, Helena and Bozeman all have some of the worst air quality numbers in the entire United States, with some AQI numbers ranking worse than Jakarta, Indonesia or Delhi, India. That's really bad.
Scary hot temperatures are coming to several counties in Montana this weekend and into next week. An Excessive Heat Watch covers almost half of the state with triple digit temperatures coming for several days in a row.
Some counties in Montana are still experiencing fire weather conditions with high temps, low humidity and gusty winds prompting Fire Weather Watches to continue. Northeast Montana counties are still under a Watch.
