After a beautiful weekend, we will be ending the last week of July with hot temperatures, and on again off again thunderstorms. Today will be an overall quiet summer day. The state will stay dry, with clear skies, and that's due to a strong ridge of high pressure. The high temperatures will remain in the 80s and low 90s.
Tomorrow's temperatures will remain in the 80s and 90s, but a few areas in southwest Montana highs will stay a tad cooler. A few isolated storms will move into southern Montana. The main concern for tomorrow's system is frequent lightning, gusty winds, and torrential downpours at times. As of now, Gallatin County is on the edge of marginal risk for flash flooding.
Wednesday, highs will again stay in the 80s and 90s, but just like Tuesday, isolated thunderstorms will move and favor southwest; as of now, the system coverage is expected to be minimal; but gusty winds, and frequent lightning is expected. Additionally, if working outside, make sure you take breaks, drink plenty of water, try to minimize sun exposure, and finally NEVER leave children, disabled adults, or pets in a parked car.
