Another blue bird day is in store for most of North-Central Montana.

Temperatures will reach the 70s in central parts of the state and stretch into the 80s in the northeast.

Some areas in Central Montana may see their first 80s of the seasons by tomorrow!

Flood levels continue to decrease to just at or below minor flood stages.

Expect most river and creek water to return to its banks by the end of the week.

The only area of concern lasting through the end of the week will be the Sun River at Vaughn.

Gibson Reservoir is still at or near capacity.

Controlled releases of excess water from the reservoir will continue through the end of the week, and this is what is keeping the Sun River flood stage at minor.

Flood levels are expected to peak through the early morning hours today.
