345 PM MDT SAT JUL 30 2016
Weak high pressure aloft centered over Montana kept the state mostly
sunny today. However, isolated thunderstorms developed this
afternoon along a frontal boundary stretching Dillon in the
southwest to the Blaine-Phillips county border along the Hi-Line.
These are likely producing gusty winds and brief heavy rain, but a
few of the stronger ones may be producing small hail. Gusty west
winds have also developed west of this boundary, but easterly winds
are lighter east of it.
At 3 pm...temperatures had generally warmed into the 80s to lower
90s, ranging from 75 at West Yellowstone to 96 at Helena.
Overnight...thunderstorms will linger over the southern and
northeast portions of Montana, but they will likely weaken.
Otherwise, skies will be mostly clear. Temperatures in the east will
only fall into the upper 50s to mid 60s, while 50s will be common in
the west with 40s possible in the mountains.
