The United States Forest Service and the National Weather Service have declared almost all of Western Montana to under a Red Flag Warning.

Forecaster Al Denatta says the reason for the Red Flag Warning is because of strong westerly winds expected Monday afternoon, which could exacerbate fire danger.

The Missoula City County Health Department as of 5 pm Sunday, declared the air in the Missoula valley to be unhealthy.
