.DISCUSSION...

..Cold frontal passage tonight with increasing thunderstorm
chances Tuesday afternoon and evening...

Overnight through mid-morning tomorrow a cold front will cross the
area. Winds will remain breezy overnight and behind the front
will shift to the west to northwest. Temperatures will be
slightly cooler, which will result in relative humidity values in
the low to mid 20. By early afternoon some thunderstorms will
develop across the Gallatin National Forest and spread east.
Rainfall amounts may not produce a wetting rain. A few of these
storms could produce some strong outflow winds and small hail.
Through the rest of the week temperatures will be cooler with
higher relative humidities and a chance of showers each
afternoon. Reimer
