The warm weather will continue today as highs will top out in the mid-80s. This afternoon, thunderstorms will begin to develop in southwest Montana, moving into central Montana by late afternoon. Thunderstorms will begin in Helena around 5-6 pm, and in Great Falls around 6-7. Storms will continue through the evening hours, clearing out overnight. There may potentially be an isolated t-storm Friday in north-central Montana, but it will be brief- if at all. Saturday will be the day with the most widespread thunderstorms. Almost everywhere in Montana will see thunderstorms for most of the day Saturday, so wherever your weekend takes you, bring an umbrella! However, the weekend won’t be a total downpour. Sunday will be much clearer, as will the beginning of next week.
Have a great day!
