MISSOULA - This new week will look and feel very similar to the weekend weather we just experienced.

Temperatures will remain warm through the week and above normal, with a few afternoon thunderstorms possible.

The thunderstorms will pop up in the afternoons/evenings. Light hail and gusty winds might tag along in the storm, but chances are minimal (30-40%) throughout the week.

The high pressure ridge that's currently in place will gain strength by the weekend, causing temperatures to jump into record-breaking territories on Saturday.

It will be a small low pressure trough causing the potential thunderstorms.

For most of the time, skies will remain mostly clear and sunny.

Plan for jacket weather in the mornings and 70s to 80s during the daytime.
