Showers and storms move from western and southwestern Montana east over the Divide and into the valleys and plains.

Some storms may be severe.

Heavy rain, quarter-sized hail and wind gusts up to 60 mph will be possible with storms on Saturday.

Most, if not all, rain activity moves out by 11 PM tonight.

But severe thunderstorm chances return on Sunday.

The Storm Prediction Center has put parts of Montana under the ‘Slight Risk’ category, meaning scattered severe storms are possible in those areas.

The severe risk moves east and out of the state for the most part on Monday, but we could still see the chance of more showers and non-severe storms.

Rain chances low on Tuesday with much warmer temperatures moving in mid-week.
