GREAT FALLS - Montana can't catch a break when it comes to the unusually hot, dry weather.
STORMTracker meteorologist Mike Rawlins says high pressure is sitting over the West and temperatures will soar into the 80s and 90s for Wednesday.
"That high is stubborn, and it's not going anywhere anytime soon," says Rawlins.
Most cities are expected to reach the middle 80s this afternoon and low to mid 90s by Friday.
Dry weather is expected through the rest of the work week, too.
"I do think we'll see a few isolated thunderstorms on Friday evening, but my concern is for dry storms that could spark new fires," says Rawlins.
