Temperatures around the state Thursday will remain comfortable but warmer than Wednesday; in the mid-80s. Dry conditions prevail across the state as a high-pressure system settles over Montana into Friday. Speaking of Friday, this will be the warmest day of the week across the state, with temperatures nearing 100 in Helena and Great Falls; and multiple areas in eastern Montana likely to topple the century mark. There also won't be much relief from the heat in the form of moisture, as the only moisture will likely be minuscule rain showers on the Continental Divide. Saturday is a few degrees cooler than the previous day but will stay warm and dry most of the day as a low-pressure system and cold front approach from the northwest. Late Saturday evening and into Sunday, that low-pressure system and cold front move through Montana, increasing showers moving into Sunday morning. Thunderstorms will most likely populate throughout Sunday as temperatures drop to the low 70s. Rain should continue into Monday before dissipating during the early morning hours on Tuesday. As always: A cloudy day is no match for a sunny disposition.
Be nice to each other.
