NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE BILLINGS MT
336 AM MDT THU MAY 5 2016

.DISCUSSION...
HOT AND DRY TODAY

RECORD HIGH TEMPERATURES TODAY WITH AFTERNOON HUMIDITY IN THE
LOWER TEENS BUT WINDS WILL BE RELATIVELY LIGHT THOUGH EXPECT GUSTS
TO 20 MPH DURING THE AFTERNOON. A COLD FRONT WILL MOVE THROUGH THE
REGION LATE TONIGHT WITH FRIDAY COOLER WITH HIGHER HUMIDITY.
SHOWER AND THUNDERSTORM ACTIVITY WILL ARRIVE BEHIND THE FRONT AND
FAVOR FOOTHILLS AND MOUNTAINS. SATURDAY WILL CONTINUE THE COOL
TREND WITH SHOWER ACTIVITY LIMITED TO THE FOOTHILLS AND MOUNTAINS
BUT THE PLAINS WILL BE DRY AND SHOULD SEE MORE SUNSHINE. THERE IS
A BETTER CHANCE FOR A COOLER AND MORE UNSETTLED PATTERN TO DEVELOP
MONDAY INTO TUESDAY. BORSUM
