Montana Weather Summary
National Weather Service Great Falls MT
430 PM MDT Tue May 23 2017

An upper level high extending from the Pacific Northwest to Hudson
Bay brought very nice late spring weather to the Treasure State
today. Through 4pm, temperatures had warmed well into the 70s and
80s for most areas. The only exception was southeast Montana where
temperatures were still only in the 60s.

The upper level high will be short lived, though, as an unseasonably
strong upper level system moves through the region. This system will
bring breezy/windy conditions to most of the state. In some areas,
the wind may get strong enough to cause some damage, especially with
increasing foliage on trees. The wind will also make travel
difficult and caution is encouraged for those traveling through the
area with recreational vehicles and trailers. A cold front
associated with this system will cause temperatures to drop back
down closer to normal.

Isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms may accompany the
front on Wednesday, especially across eastern Montana.
