NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE BILLINGS MT
317 AM MDT FRI AUG 29 2014

.DISCUSSION...
EXPECT TO SEE A COOLING TREND THE NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS AS THE
WEATHER PATTERN TURNS MORE ACTIVE. WE WILL SEE A FEW LINGERING
SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS OVER THE EASTERN PLAINS TODAY AFFECTING
MAINLY THE SIOUX RANGER DISTRICT/CUSTER NATIONAL FOREST AREA. A
FEW SHOWERS OR THUNDERSTORMS MAY DEVELOP OVER THE BEARTOOTHS/GALLATIN
LATE TODAY AS WELL. A STRONGER COLD FRONT WILL MOVE THROUGH THE
DISTRICTS SATURDAY SETTING THE STAGE FOR WIDESPREAD SHOWERS AND
THUNDERSTORMS WHICH SHOULD LINGER INTO SATURDAY EVENING.
TEMPERATURES WILL AGAIN TAKE ANOTHER DIP FOR THE WEEKEND WITH
TEMPERATURES 5 TO 10 DEGREES BELOW NORMAL. LOOK FOR DAYTIME
HUMIDITY TO BE ABOVE NORMAL FOR THIS TIME OF YEAR WITH 30 TO 45
PERCENT COMMON...AND GOOD OVERNIGHT RECOVERIES. BT
