Many Missoulians and folks residing in western Montana are thanking Mother Nature this morning for some much needed precipitation. The rain and wind led to clear skies, greeting residents with fresh air and a little less smoke.
City and county emergency services are prepared for possible thunderstorms and high winds which are forecast to hit western Montana Friday evening. As rain starts to dribble down the KGVO window, the National Weather Service is already predicting damaging winds and isolated thunderstorms.
Monday night's storm sure did a number on the larger Missoula area where power outages are still an issue. Thankfully, cleanup crews are still going at it, and Missoula Parks and Recreation's Urban Forestry Division wants to provide helpful reminders for those still cleaning up mother nature's mess.
National Weather Service forecaster Ryan Leach says Western Montana and Eastern Idaho experienced over a thousand lightning strikes from Sunday’s thunderstorms, however, he says Lake County felt the brunt of the storms.
Radio gear, in this case the KYSS FM transmitter, can be very susceptible to lightening, especially when it’s perched on the top of one the highest peaks around the Missoula valley. There are only so many things you can do to protect it.
