The heat continues today with afternoon highs climbing into the mid to upper 80s for Butte and Bozeman to the upper 90s around Missoula. Once again, triple digits are possible for far northwest Montana. The combination of monsoon moisture and daytime heating will spark off showers and a few thunderstorms this afternoon. The best chance will be from Missoula to Butte.

Widespread afternoon thunderstorms are possible Saturday. Temperatures will be a few degrees cooler this weekend with highs in the 80s and low 90s.

The daily threat of isolated afternoon storms will remain in the forecast through next week.
