A SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH has been issued for multiple locations in Montana, including the following counties: Broadwater, Jefferson, Madison, Fergus, Judith Basin, Meagher, and Gallatin. A FLOOD WATCH continues for central Montana, due to all of the additional rainfall we have received and will continue to receive tonight.
