The warmest weather of the year so far is about to develop. A ridge of high pressure will build across the west including Montana allowing temperatures to reach levels not seen since September of last year. Tuesday will be a beautiful spring day with sunny skies and highs into the 60s to near 70. The warmest day of the week will be Wednesday as the thermometer will stretch into the 70s to near 80. Skies will be mostly sunny to partly cloudy. A very remote thunderstorm or two will develop late in the afternoon or evening, but most of the state will be dry and warm. A cold front will approach on Thursday with increasing clouds, showers and thunderstorms by the afternoon. It will still be a warm day with highs in the 60s and 70s. That warmth will fuel thunderstorms that could get pretty nasty. A few of the numerous thunderstorms could approach severe levels with significant hail and damaging wind. Please keep an eye on the sky if you are outside on Thursday afternoon. Friday will be a cooler spring day with a few isolated showers and highs in the 50s and 60s. Snow showers will mix in over the mountains. The weekend will start out pleasant with partly cloudy skies and mild temperatures in the 60s to near 70. Sunday will have increasing clouds with showers and a few thunderstorms developing. This next storm could produce a widespread rain with lower snow levels on Monday. Have a great day!
