National Weather Service Billings MT

... Warm and Dry Tomorrow ...

...Increased Thunderstorm Activity Thursday and Friday...

.DISCUSSION...

Warm and dry tomorrow with temperatures in the 90s, humidity
values in the teens, and only a small chance for a thunderstorm
over the mountains. Thursday afternoon scattered thunderstorms
over the mountains will push eastward over the Plains by night
brining the potential for new fire starts. Gusty winds out of the
southeast over far eastern Montana during the afternoon Thursday
but humidity should hover in the low 20 percent range. Weak cold
front pushes through Friday morning but winds don`t look
significantly gusty along the front at this time. Friday,
thunderstorms possible over extreme eastern Montana and the
Dakotas during the afternoon. Walsh
