Fires from as far south as Utah have made their way into the Missoula Valley, making skies hazy. National Weather Service forecaster Jeff Kitzmiller said smoke from fires in Utah and Idaho are combining to obscure visibility.

Kitzmiller says a light breeze may help to usher the smoke out of the valley, and Missoula might receive a glancing blow from thunderstorms headed towards southwestern Montana.
