Get ready for a gorgeous weekend! After several days of showery and stormy weather, conditions will dry out for the weekend, but long range there should be a return to wet conditions through the end of the month. This is important because much of the state is still in a serious drought. A couple of isolated showers are possible mainly over the mountains on Saturday, but most of the state will be mostly sunny. Highs will be warm in the 60s and 70s. Sunday will be spectacular with mostly sunny skies and highs in the 70s to around 80. Monday likely will be the warmest day of the year so far with highs in the 70s and 80s. A few spots in eastern Montana could come close to 90. Meanwhile in southwest Montana, a few isolated thunderstorms will develop and could sneak as far north as Helena by late in the day. Thunderstorm activity will increase on Tuesday as a new storm approaches. Strong to potentially severe thunderstorms will be scattered over western and central areas. Highs will still be warm in the 70s and 80s. A strong cold front will likely spread strong to severe thunderstorms over much of Montana on Wednesday. More wet weather is likely headed into next weekend.
Congrats to Carroll College graduates!
