Following the passage of Wednesday's cold front, temperatures will remain slightly cooler on Thursday.

Highs will trend in the low to mid 70s under partly cloudy skies.

As our next weather system approaches a few scattered showers can't be ruled out this afternoon along the Hi-line.

There will be a better chance of stronger storms Friday afternoon, primarily in Southwestern Montana.

An incoming area of low pressure will bring with it widespread showers and thunderstorms as Saturday rolls around.

The rain and thunderstorms are expected to take us through the day Saturday and well into the evening.

Although a few isolated severe thunderstorms can't be ruled out in Central Montana, the Northeastern corner of the state will catch the brunt of the severe weather.

Cloudy skies and a few lingering showers are expected on Sunday.

Temperatures will take a tumble as we head into the new work week, with highs on Monday in the mid 50s.

As or right now forecast models are suggesting that high pressure will rebuild on Tuesday, allowing for warmer temperatures later next week.
