TONIGHT: Mild and mostly cloudy as temps should be in the low to mid 60’s to near 70 degrees. Winds will be light and variable from the Southwest for most of us but will kick up in Eastern Montana as we head into the overnight hours with gusts 30-40 mph. The chance is there for a lingering shower or thunderstorm during the early overnight hours.
TUESDAY: Looks to be in the low to upper 90’s for daytime highs hottest in Eastern Montana. Mostly cloudy in the morning and then clearing out towards the afternoon hours.
