A SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WARNING has been issued for eastern Pondera, southwest Liberty, southeast Toole and northwest Chouteau Counties until 215pm.  Radar has indicated hail to be as large as a quarter and wind as high as 60mph.  The storm is moving east at 15mph.

A Severe Thunderstorm Watch is in effect for northcentral Montana into this evening.  More thunderstorms are developing, some could produce large hail and damaging wind.  There is a very remote probability of a tornado.  Move to an underground shelter, basement or safe room. If none is available, a small, windowless interior room or hallway on the lowest level of a sturdy building is the safest alternative. Remember: no area of a mobile home is safe during a tornado.

Tune into NBC at 5, 6 and 10 for the latest forecast.
