Wildfire smoke from Washington will keep us a little cooler than what we saw on Saturday. That said, it will still be a hot afternoon and mild evening.
A shift in the wind brings a wetter atmosphere to our region starting Monday and will move the smoke away from our region. The best chance for thunderstorms on Monday will be from Dillon to Butte to Missoula. Morning showers and thunder will be possible region-wide on Tuesday before more thunderstorms Wednesday afternoon around southwest Montana. Temperatures fall back into the 70s and 80s late in the week with more wet weather possible next weekend.
