Temperatures will continue to climb on Tuesday as high pressure build over Montana.

Highs on Tuesday are expected to be in the high 80s and low 90s for most of the state.

The slightest potential of afternoon thunderstorms remains for Central Montana, primarily over the mountains.

Any storms that do kick off will likely remain dry in nature.

Wednesday is still anticipated to be the warmest day this week with highs in the low 90s.

A colder air mass is expected to slide into the state Wednesday night.

This will break down the current ridge of high pressure and is expected to instigate showers and thunderstorms on Thursday.

Conditions are expected to remain dry into the weekend with temperature in the low to mid 80s.
