The last weekend of summer will be nice but there will be a few thunderstorms at times.  Morning temperatures will not be as cold as they were Friday morning, when many people woke up to a frost with temperatures in the 20s and 30s.  A southwest flow will increase on Saturday which will push temperatures up into the 70s for highs.  Most of the day will have a mix of clouds and some sun, but it will also be dry…most of the day.  Scattered thunderstorms will start to develop near the Continental Divide late on Saturday around 6-8pm.  Storms will move northeast through the overnight.  Sunday will be a pretty nice day with mostly sunny skies and highs again in the 70s.  However, a front will move off the Rocky Mountain Front late in the day with thunderstorms up near the Hi-line.  Most of the state will be dry for most of the day once again.  Back to work and school Monday, the weather will be nice and sunny with highs in the 60s to around 70.  Another wet weather pattern will move in for Wednesday and Thursday of next week, which will allow Montana’s fire season to come close to an end.  Not yet, but fire season is almost over.

Have a great weekend.
