.DISCUSSION...Last night was pretty active with thunderstorms, a
few of which were quite strong with hail and heavy rain. many
storms remain near Butte early this morning but all of the
activity should diminish by sunrise.

The moisture and shortwave that moved through the region
yesterday are now moving off to the east and high pressure will
restrengthen today. Very warm temperatures are expected today.

High pressure over the western US is forecast to remain in place
this week, so expect the continuation of very warm temperatures.
Friday appears to be the hottest day of the week. Afternoon
breezes are also likely each day.

There may be a shortwave passage on Saturday with an increased
threat of gusty winds during July Forth festivities.


.AVIATION...Showers continue to move through southwest Montana
early this morning but are expected to move out of the area by
sunrise. High pressure will re-establish itself today so very
warm high temperatures can again be expected. Lingering moisture
between KSMN and KBTM will promote cumulus build-ups this
afternoon with possibly an isolated storm. The rest of the region
will have fair conditions today with afternoon breezes and
slightly reduced visibilities due to haze and wildfire smoke
moving into the region from Washington and Canada.
