An unstable atmosphere will lead to strong and likely severe thunderstorms Wednesday afternoon.

Moisture from both the Pacific coast and the Gulf of Mexico will help to fuel our storm systems over the next few days.

Temperatures are expected to reach the mid 70s for central Montana and low 80s in northeastern Montana on Wednesday.

Quarter sized hail, gusty winds, and significant rain are likely Wednesday afternoon.

Colder air will push through the state on Thursday, creating an even more unstable atmosphere.

Storms will be capable of producing large hail, cloud to ground lightning, and significant rain Thursday afternoon and evening.

Spotty thunderstorms are expected to continue on Friday.

More sun is expected this weekend.
