Montana Weather Summary
National Weather Service Great Falls MT
556 PM MDT Wed Aug 23 2017

This afternoon saw very warm temperatures once again across the
state with highs reaching the upper 80s to low 90s at lower
elevations. Areas of smoke continued to impact much of the state
from numerous fires around the state and region.

Clouds will continue to increase from the southwest through Thursday
ahead of an upper level disturbance moving into the Pacific
Northwest. This disturbance will send a cold front across the state
on Thursday, accompanied by isolated to scattered showers and
thunderstorms. For many areas, this may end up being the best chance
of precipitation over the next five to seven days. Even so, not
everyone will see precipitation with this front. Temperatures on
Thursday will be warmest across eastern Montana where the front will
not move through until later in the day. Western Montana will still
be warm, but not as warm as today.
