Monday through midday Wednesday: Ample sunshine will define the forecast early in the week. Highs Monday will be in the mid 60s to mid 70s in the region, reaching the mid 70s to low 80s Wednesday. Lows rise from the 30s Sunday night to the 40s over the next three days.
Wednesday afternoon could see a few thunderstorms cross the state line from Idaho into northwestern Montana. This will be a preview of wet, potentially stormy weather over the couple days to follow.
Thursday: Thunderstorms will develop in the afternoon with the most potential for stronger storms in the Mission and Flathead valleys. We could see afternoon showers in Bozeman, but most of the activity will stay in the northern and western parts of our viewing area. Highs will be in the low 70s.
Friday: Expect a cooler, wetter day with more thunderstorms. This time, the best chance for storms will be in southwest Montana. Highs will be in the 60s.
Next Weekend: Look for skies to clear by Saturday night and ample sunshine next Sunday with highs in the 60s and 70s.
