MISSOULA — Expect another rain-free night across Western Montana.
A nice cool down is in store overnight after a warm afternoon.
Lows drop to the upper 40s and low 50s in most of the state.
Clouds start moving in from the west tomorrow morning.
Rain follows shortly behind.
Isolated showers and thunderstorms are expected to develop across Western Montana tomorrow afternoon and evening.
We are not expected to see any severe storms out of this system, but some storms may still produce frequent cloud-to-ground lightning, pea-size hail, and gusty wind.
Isolated showers will linger across West-Central and Northwest Montana into Friday morning.
A ridge redevelops over Montana Friday afternoon and holds strong through Monday afternoon.
This means warmer than average temperatures and sunshine for Labor Day weekend!
We are still watching models as they show breakdown in the ridge next week.
This means cooler weather by midweek (next week) and scattered showers and storms.
It is still a while out, but we will continue to monitor the changing forecast after we enjoy a pleasant Labor Day forecast!
