A red flag fire weather warning is in place today through this evening for most of the Missoula area and parts of Kalispell.

NBC Montana reported Monday that the Bitterroot Valley, Mission Valley, lower Clark Fork Region, Swan Valley, Glacier National Park, and Lincoln County are all included in this warning as well.

A lack of precipitation and low humidity has extended the red flag warning until 9 p.m. tonight in the Missoula region and 11 p.m. for Kalispell.

NBC Montana said that any thunderstorms that may form will bring very little rainfall, making the chances for a fire startup that much more likely.

Please take extra precautions this evening to prevent any wildfires in these areas.
