Today will be a rinse and repeat of yesterday's conditions. The day will start dry with a little more sunshine. Showers are expected to develop in southwestern Montana early in the afternoon and will move into central Montana during late afternoon early evening. A cold front will move through the state and will help kick off a few strong thunderstorms. As of now, the risk is marginal, but the system could still produce small hail, gusty wind, and frequent lightning. The showers will not be as widespread as Monday's system, but rivers, streams, and creeks could experience rapid rises in water levels along the Rocky Mountain Front. The high temperature for today will remain below average. The highs will stay in the 60s and 70s; a few areas in eastern Montana temperatures will stay in the low 80s. Tomorrow the sun will return to the state, and the day will be overall dry with warm temperatures. The highs will climb to the 70s and 80s. Friday, sunny skies, warm temperatures, and dry conditions will stick around until a few isolated thunderstorms develop during late afternoon early evening. Saturday will be similar to Friday, we will start with mostly sunny skies, warm temperatures, and dry conditions; but a few isolated thunderstorms will pop up in the afternoon. Sunday, the state will have a better chance for widespread showers and thunderstorms.

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