.DISCUSSION...

...Locally heavy rainfall with scattered storms SE MT today...

RH values will be higher than yesterday with monsoonal and plains
moisture building in from the south/southeast. This will also
bring more widespread showers/thunderstorms, mainly in the
afternoon and evening hours. Slow storm motion will result in
locally heavy precipitation near any storms today. Winds will be
generally light outside of storms today, and strongest winds over
southeast MT will be early this morning. Similar conditions
expected for Friday. Chambers
