Update
Isolated to scattered thunderstorms are possible across much of
the area this afternoon and evening as an upper trough and jet max
move into the region. At the same time, a surface trough will
move east through the area. The forcing from the jet MAX and
surface trough will combine with modest instability and good deep
layer shear to produce strong to severe storms. Thunderstorms
will exit eastern areas around midnight, or shortly after tonight.

Have updated pops and sky cover to current trends. Otherwise, the
rest of the forecast remains on track. Previous discussion and an
updated aviation discussion are below. Stp

another chance of isolated severe storms arrives today with the
best chance being south of a line from billings to baker. The cape
is weaker than what we saw yesterday but due to the jet that is
moving into the area, the lift will be favorable for hail
formation and gusty winds. The placement of this jet will indicate
where the strongest storms will form. Hail up to the size of
quarters and winds up to 70 mph are possible with the strongest
storms. Moving into Thursday, a trough will begin to move into the
area allowing for more widespread precipitation and cooler
temperatures. High temperatures will be in the 70s today with
temps dropping 10 degrees on Thursday into the high 50s and low
60s. Low temperatures will drop into the high 30s and 40s for
tonight and Thursday night. Carrothers

no significant changes to the extended period forecast. Broad and
unseasonably deep upper trough will dominate the northern rockies
and high plains through the weekend, before ridging over the
rockies leads to a more typical june pattern and a warm up next
week. Highs 10-15 degrees below normal are expected for the
weekend, warming to near normal in the upper 70s to lower 80s by
Tuesday. The wettest period will likely be the Thursday night into
Friday time frame, but isolated to scattered convection remains
possible into next week. Look for breezier than normal conditions
Friday and Saturday as well. Bt

Aviation
Ifr conditions will slowly lift through late morning at kmls. Otherwise,
vfr conditions are expected to prevail through 20z. After 20z,
scattered shower and thunderstorm activity will develop again from
the beartooth mountain range to north of kmls, and spread slowly
east producing areas of MVFR to ifr conditions. In addition,
surface winds could gust to 50 kt or higher, and hail to golf
ball size may occur, mainly from south of a hardin to kmls line,
including over the kshr area. Expect areas of mountain
obscuration. Thunderstorms will be mostly out of the area by 07z
tonight. Arthur

These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. 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.
