The severe thunderstorm watch which was in effect for NE Montana
was allowed to expire on time. A lingering strong thunderstorm is
possible overnight but the severe risk has ended.

Previous Discussion:

At 2 pm, thunderstorms are developing over central Montana and
are expected to move across eastern Montana over the next 6 hours
or so. Some will be severe with mainly large hail being the
threat. Flooding potential doesn`t look to be a big threat as
storms will be moving and could see a Flood Advisory or two being
issued, but a Flood Watch doesn`t seem necessary. See info from
SPC for the latest guidance.

Severe thunderstorms threat looks to continue into Saturday where
the upper trough to our west keeps us in SW flow aloft. Finally
by Sunday, the pattern breaks and an upper ridge looks to build
over the Pacific NW early next week. However, this confidence this
far out is a bit shaky. TFJ


An isolated shower or thunderstorm remains possible but expect a
mostly return to VFR overnight. That said, patchy fog or low
stratus may result in MVFR/IFR at times over terminals.
