Heavy rain, showers and thunderstorms continue to bombard Montana. Another stormy night is on tap with rain, storms and mountain snow occurring into Thursday morning. Thursday will start out with rain and higher elevation snow along the Continental Divide. The wind will be very strong for most of the state. There will be some sunshine mixed in, with fewer clouds the farther east in the state. Friday will be partly cloudy, blustery and cool with isolated showers. The mountains of southern Montana will have snow. Heading into Memorial Day Weekend, Saturday will be the most unsettled day with scattered showers and thunderstorms. The wind will be out of the west up to 30mph. Low pressure will move out and high pressure will start building into the state on Sunday for mostly sunny skies and warmer temperatures across the board. Memorial Day will be even warmer under partly cloudy to mostly sunny skies. An isolated thunderstorm is possible late in the day. The next storm system will spread thunderstorms through the state on Tuesday.
Have a great day.
