The frontal system that passed through the state yesterday, bringing severe weather across the eastern half of the state, has left us in a cooler air mass in its wake.

This cooler air is limiting the potential for severe weather to develop today with the exception of extreme southeastern Montana in Carter and Powder River counties where a severe thunderstorm watch has been issued until 8 pm this evening.

Carter county is coming off a day yesterday where a Tornado developed and was sustained for quite some time.

High temperatures this afternoon are for 60s and 70s across much of the state. Here in Billings I don’t have us picking up more than a couple more degree from where we’re at right now at 2 o’clock. Our high temperature is likely around 68 degrees.

Chances of showers and weak storms will persist over the evening hours and I think it is likely we see some activity here around dinner time.

Things dry off tomorrow with only slight chances of activity later in the afternoon. Mostly sunny skies will bring temperatures back up to the mid 70s.
