The Big Sandy Mountaineer -

One Hot July predicted for the Golden Triangle

If you love the hot weather, chances are you are going to be in Hog Heaven for the rest of July.

At least that is the long range forecast of the National Weather Service in Great Falls, Montana.

After the little series of colder fronts and actually rain that came through some areas of the Golden Triangle during the weekend, this week looks to be hot and little chance of precipitation unless there could be an afternoon or evening thunder shower.

This month for sure, it can be seen why the area was once called the "Big Dry".

As for the balance of July, look for no change, just hot and dry throughout most of the western United States including most of Montana.

So, stay inside when you can. Run that air conditioner and keep drinking much more water than you think you need. If you are going out to weed the garden or pick strawberries, do it in the cool hours close to dawn or late at night when the temperature starts to drop sometimes dramatically.

The blessing so far with this heat wave is that temperatures have actually dipped into the fifties and high forties during the night time hours.

So, if heat is your thing, now is your year in Montana to really enjoy it all!
