Welcome to Monday, the coolest day of the week. Our temps are only in the 70s in the early afternoon and could possibly get up into the low 80s before the day is done.

So far we do see a little bit of smoke on the horizon the same thing is true over in Missoula.

Only this time the smoke is not from the California fires but more from the Western Montana and Idaho fires.

The Smoke from the California fires is traveling due East into Salt Lake City and from there, the Midwest.

The thunderstorm Outlook for Monday shows only a few isolated showers in Eastern Montana with a marginal risk of severe storms over the Black Hills of South Dakota.

In fact, the Doppler radar and satellite imagery shows just that, a few scattered showers in Eastern Montana and some over the Black Hills of South Dakota.

Plus, we see a few showers over the Bighorn Mountains South of Sheridan.

An upper level trough continues to slide through Eastern Montana and into the Dakotas while a new Ridge of high pressure starts building in from the West.

This will start to cook things up for us the rest of the week. In fact, we will be flirting with 100º by the end of the week.


TONIGHT: Mostly clear and mild with a West wind at 5 to 10 mph. Low 58°.

TUESDAY: Sunny and hot. West winds 5 to 15 mph. High 90º.

WEDNESDAY: Mostly sunny and continued hot. Southwest winds 5 to 15 mph. High 93°.
