Posted at 9:27 AM, May 30, 2024

WEATHER DISCUSSION: High temperatures today will still struggle to climb back near average again, you can expect them in the upper 50’s and 60’s across the region. While showers are still hanging around in portions of Southwestern Montana and Eastern portions of the Hi-line, North Central Montana can expect drier conditions for the most part. An upper-level trough has taken place over the region, keeping temperatures on the cooler side. Late this morning through this afternoon an upper-level disturbance will move along the Hi-Line and bring rain showers to the Central and Eastern portion and areas just south of the Hi-Line. Due to a strong surface pressure gradient along the Rocky Mountain Front, gusty conditions are likely with gusts up to 40 mph.
