Dozens of block management areas across Montana remain closed due to fire danger this week but some help from mother nature is on the way.
The National Weather Service forecasts high temperatures dipping to the low-50s by the end of the week in areas around the state including around Billings, Missoula, and Bozeman, where temps might not even break 50 on Friday.
Montana will also see some much needed moisture. Rain or snow is likely each of the next several days. In Western Montana, a winter storm warning has been issued for Thursday night and into Friday. Slushy accumulation is expected with up to 3 inches above 6,000 feet and up to 6 inches above 7,000 feet.
It remains to be seen if the expected temperature drop and moisture will open the closed block management areas. But it’s a positive sign for Montana hunters.
