...Increasing Thunderstorm Activity This Week...

.DISCUSSION...

Scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms will gradually spread
over the area this afternoon and evening, with best chances over
the higher terrain. Recoveries tonight are expected to be moderate
to good. Unsettled weather will continue through the week, as a
series of systems bring increased shower and thunderstorm chances,
more seasonable temperatures, and higher humidities. CWR will
increase as well. Gusty ridgetop winds are possible over SE
Montana Wednesday night. STP
