Temperatures across parts of Montana have already hit 80 degrees this Wednesday.
Thursday they’ll be even warmer.
Overnight lows will be mild, mainly in the 50s.
Afternoon highs Thursday will climb into the mid 80s, and even close to 90 degrees along the Hi-Line.
All the heat will help fuel some afternoon thunderstorms.
Showers and storms are not expected to be widespread, but the few that do develop could become strong.
