...POOR OVERNIGHT HUMIDITY RECOVERY CONTINUES ON MID-SLOPES...
...AFTERNOON THUNDERSTORM ACTIVITY INCREASING THROUGH WEEK...

.DISCUSSION...

High pressure over the Northern Rockies will draw moisture over
the region from the Desert Southwest through the week. Southwest
Montana will have the best chance of thunderstorm activity during
this time, with likelihood increasing each day. Precipitation
chances will creep northward over time as well, however overnight
humidity recovery at mid-slope elevations will remain poor
throughout the week. Otherwise, terrain driven breezes will
develop each afternoon.
