Today will be an active day for the state. The high temperatures will remain in the 70s, ' aside from a few areas in eastern Montana, temperatures will stay in the low 80s. With the help of a cold front and unusually high humidity, it will help kick off strong to severe thunderstorms during the afternoon. The strongest storms are expected to form in north-central Montana and track eastward. The farther northeast the system moves, the risk will upgrade from a marginal to an enhanced risk. An enhanced risk storm can produce large hail, strong winds, torrential downpours, and frequent lightning. Numerous severe thunderstorms are possible, and they can be more persistent or widespread.

Tomorrow the temperatures will stay in the 70s. As the system tracks north, a few areas along the Hi-Line will possibly have light showers, but the wind will stick around the state.

Thursday, the sun will return, the wind will be calm, and the temperatures will warm back into the 80s.

Friday is our next chance for a few isolated storms.

Saturday and Sunday summer will return to the state, but with the temperatures warming back up, low humidity, and gusty winds at times fire danger can become a concern

Enjoy your day, and congratulations to all the 2020 graduates🎓!
