Update
An area of showers and light rain expanded across northeast
wyoming and southeast montana late this afternoon into this
evening. Short range models continue this trend through late
evening. Light rain has been reported at times at sheridan and
bowman radar shows a solid area of light rain across southeast
montana. As a result, I increased shower chances through late
evening across eastern sheridan county wyoming and across the
southern half of powder river and carter counties. This activity
will decrease from west to east by late evening leaving only a
slight chance for a shower or isolated thunderstorm after midnight
for areas mainly along and south of a livingston-billings-broadus
line. The remainder of the forecast is in good shape. Updated
forecast has been sent. Hooley

Short term Valid for Wed and thu...

monsoonal moisture advecting north over the region and weak
upslope flow near the surface has allowed clouds to increase and showers
to form over the area this afternoon. Weak forcing has kept most
activity as showers. Scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms
will continue to spread over the area through the evening. Best
chance of showers thunderstorms will be generally south of a
livingston to billings to ekalaka line. Temperatures have ranged
from the 70s over western and central zones, to the 80s across the
east.

Warmer conditions can be expected for Wednesday and Thursday as
ridging builds back over the northern rockies. However, monsoonal
moisture is projected to increase over the region, with weak
impulses moving through as well. This will keep shower and
thunderstorm chances in the forecast, highest over the mountains.

A few thunderstorms could be strong on Thursday as a shortwave
approaches from the west, instability increases, and southeast
flow develops at the surface. Temperatures will range from the
80s to lower 90s Wednesday and Thursday. Stp

Long term Valid for fri... Sat... Sun... Mon... Tue...

Friday morning, shortwave pushes east into the dakotas while more
energy makes its way into the western mountains. Shower and
thunderstorm chances remain mainly confined to high terrain and
foothills by afternoon. Unsettled pattern continues into early
next week with periods of energy rounding the ridge over the
central rockies. Thunderstorms look monsoonal in nature and driven
by diurnall heating. Temperatures should remain in the upper 80s
to low 90s through the period with upper-level cloud cover keeping
things in check despite continued ridging. Walsh

Aviation
Isolated light showers or sprinkles are expected tonight, mainly
near the mountains foothills and in far southeast mt.VFR
conditions will prevail. Expect isolated to scattered
thunderstorms to develop by late Wednesday afternoon, again mainly
near the mountains and foothills. Jkl

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
