National Weather Service Billings MT

.DISCUSSION...
...Very warm with low humidities today...
...Southeast winds increasing over southeast Montana and
northwest South Dakota today....
...Cold frontal passage tonight with increasing thunderstorm
chances Tuesday afternoon and evening...
Today will be warm as an upper ridge moves over the area and
surface low pressure forms in the lee of the Canadian Rockies.
Humidity levels will be low with teens to lower 20s. Southeast
winds will increase over eastern Montana and northwest South
Dakota, with some gusts to 30 mph possible. The chance of
thundestorms will be confined to the western mountains this
afternoon spreading into the adjacent plains this evening. A cold
front will push across the area later tonight into Tuesday. This
will provide gusty northwest winds and an increased chance of
thundestorms. Thunderstorms on Tuesday will be a mix of wet and
dry. The front will bring in cooler temperatures for Tuesday and
Wednesday. Borsum
