.DISCUSSION...
Low pressure system will be lifting across eastern Montana today
with wide band of rain spreading through the region on the
north side of the low. Abundant moisture available with PW of over
and inch, combined with slow moving system, could result in some
heavy rain. Some severe potential with the system, and most likely
area will be over the southeast with the low level jet pushing dry
slot into the region.

System weakens as it lifts into Canada late tonight with showers
continuing in the moist moderately unstable airmass on Thursday.

Ridge builds up ahead of next Pacific trof for drier weather on
Friday and Saturday. Showers expected for early next week as trof
cuts off over the Great Basin. Ebert

.AVIATION...
Mostly VFR conditions expected as a low pressure system lifts
across eastern Montana today. Rain showers along with scattered
thunderstorms will spread north through the day, before lifting
into Canada on Thursday. Heavy rain possible with some of the
storms so flight conditions could drop to MVFR or lower, mainly
this afternoon and evening.
