Above normal temperatures will once again move into Montana Wednesday. Upper 80's to lower 90's likely tomorrow with a building High pressure ridge.
The weather pattern will change by Thursday afternoon as a trough digs off the pacific NW coast producing a SW flow aloft for Montana which could lead to thunderstorms Thursday afternoon.
Lower levels of the atmosphere should be very dry thus there is concern that dry thunderstorms could develop Thursday afternoon and evening, gusty outflow winds and numerous lightning strikes.
Windy weather will develop late week and into the weekend as a Low pressure system swings through southern Canada and a High pressure ridge centered over Utah. This pattern should increase westerly winds and keep temperatures near normal (not as hot).
I'll have your local forecast details tonight at 5:30pm and 10pm on KXLF and KBZK.
