The National Weather Service has issued a Fire Weather Watch for the Bozeman area on Wednesday. The watch is in effect Wednesday afternoon to early evening Wednesday and is due to relatively low humidity and gusty winds.

Winds are expected from the west between 10 and 20 mph with gusts up to 35 mph. These winds will make it difficult to contain any new fire that starts on lower elevation grassy areas.

Along with the gusty winds, the weather is expected to be sunny Wednesday with highs around 90 degrees in Bozeman.
