Today the state will have hot, sunny, and dry conditions. The highs will climb to the 80s and low 90s. A high-pressure system will allow for the entire state to have clear to mostly sunny skies. As the temperature continues to rise, people who are sensitive to heat will be at a moderate heat risk potential for heatstroke. Also, with the temperatures continuously increasing and the dry conditions, it can raise fire concerns.
Tomorrow is expected to be the hottest day of the year. The temperatures will go all the way up to the mid to upper 90s and 100s. Late afternoon a few thunderstorms could develop in portions of central Montana. Also, don't forget to have your eye to the sky as the Comet Neowose is expected to make it's closest approach to the earth.
Thursday is our next chance at widespread showers and thunderstorms. Moisture will move in from the southwest, and a large portion of the state will be under mostly cloudy skies. The temperatures will cool back to the 70s and 80s, aside from our friends in eastern Montana whos temperatures will stay in the low 90s.
By Friday, sunny skies will return, and the temperature will climb back into the 80s and low 90s. Southern Montana may have a few isolated storms that can develop.
Have a great day and congratulations to all the 2020 graduates🎓!
