321 am MDT sun Jun 16 2019

today will feature scattered showers and general thunderstorms
across northeast Montana, especially in the afternoon hours while
a cold front tracks through the vicinity.

After a cool start to the day, look for seasonable temperatures by
Monday afternoon and mainly dry conditions developing as high
pressure builds into the region.

A robust shortwave will drop down on northwest flow aloft with
another surface cold front on Tuesday. This system may be a bit
wetter with a higher concentration of shower and thunderstorm

Latest 00z models still show a deep upper level low pressure
system evolving over the northern High Plains and adjacent
sections of Canada toward the middle of next week. This system
will help to maintain unsettled weather conditions at times
through the period. Late in the week, lowering heights associated
with this low pressure system as well as abundant cloud cover with
the precipitation may also help lead to a decreasing trend in
temperatures such that readings come in a bit below climatological
averages for this time of year. Maliawco


VFR conditions are expected today overall. Scattered showers and
general thunderstorms are possible today, especially this
afternoon and evening with a cold front. Brief MVFR ceilings/visibilities are
possible with steadier showers should one track directly over a
terminal location. Winds will become northwest, increasing to 10
to 20 kts after 18z. Maliawco
