...POOR OVERNIGHT HUMIDITY RECOVERY CONTINUES ON MID-SLOPES...
...AFTERNOON THUNDERSTORM ACTIVITY INCREASING THROUGH WEEK...

.DISCUSSION...

High pressure over the Northern Rockies will bring continued hot
temperatures and draw moisture into the region from the Desert
Southwest through the week. Southwest Montana will have the best
chance of thunderstorm activity during this time, with likelihood
increasing each day through midweek. Precipitation chances will
creep northward over time as well. Overnight humidity recovery at
mid-slope elevations will remain poor through at least midweek,
though gradually improving each day. Terrain-driven breezes will
develop each afternoon.
