MISSOULA - Chances for scattered showers and thunderstorms continue as Memorial Day Weekend kicks off.

More developed storms are likely today and Saturday, but as the weekend moves closer to the actual holiday, the storms look to calm down slightly.

Warmer air will arrive Sunday, bringing temperatures into the high 70s and low 80s for the new week.

Concern over travel and outdoor recreation will remain until Monday.

Thunderstorms could trigger in the afternoons and evenings, making lightning, winds, and other changing conditions a problem for boaters, hikers, or drivers.

Outside of the cloudiness and spring storms, temperatures look nice for celebrations outside!
