scattered thunderstorms have developed and have mostly been
producing some decent rainfall. Additionally, some hail has likely
been produced with these storms. With the slightly higher dewpoints
across the area, winds there have not been as much of issue.
However some outflows have produced winds around 40 mph. Storms
have also been moving at a decent speed, so even with the
efficient rainfall production, any flood concerns should be
minimal. This convection will continue to move east through the
evening as a upper level low moves across northern montana.
Going into tomorrow the area will be in northwest flow. This will
keep some scattered showers and thunderstorms across the area.
Shear and instability is much lower tomorrow, so not expecting
the any real organized convection. Friday should be dry as heights
begin to rise across the area. Temperatures both days will
generally be seasonable. Reimer
Long term Valid for sat... Sun... Mon... Tue... Wed...
weak frontal passage over the weekend will bring slight chance
pops but nothing really significant. Other than that, the forecast
is pretty dry through the beginning of next week. Temperatures
should climb from the upper 80s this weekend to the mid 90s by
Monday and Tuesday. Conditions will steadily dry out as we head
into next week with the increasing temperatures and little rain.
Models still disagree on the timing of a front that moves through
some time early next week, and stronger winds aren't in the
forecast at this time but this is something we will be watching|
closely in subsequent updates. As we head into this more summer-
like pattern around the holiday weekend we begin to become more
concerned with wildfire starts. Walsh
Scattered thunderstorms already popping up near lvm, bil, and shr.
Expect storms to move into mls later this afternoon into the early
evening. Aside from brief thunderstorm impacts this afternoon and
early evening conditions should remainVFR through the period.

There are five sources. 1) Documents and manuals from a variety of sources. These have not been checked for accuracy and in many cases have not even been read by anyone associated with L-36.com. I have no idea of they are useful or accurate, I leave that to the reader. 2) Articles others have written and submitted. If you have questions on these, please contact the author. 3) Articles that represent my personal opinions. These are intended to promote thought and for entertainment. 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.
