A very tranquil weather pattern will bring a big warming trend to western Montana. In fact, hot weather will be returning to the region. We can expect sunny days and clear nights through the weekend. Lows Tuesday night in the upper 30s in the Butte area to the 40s elsewhere. Highs will warm into the 80s on Wednesday and the upper 80s to mid 90s Thursday through the weekend.
More of the same can be expected early next week. Some monsoon moisture may return, which would bring a slight chance of isolated showers and thunderstorms, mainly to southwest Montana.
