Have cancelled all counties from a Severe Thunderstorm Watch.

A few factors greatly hindered our convection today: the low stratus w/ capping, dry mid level air in our west, and a lack of forcing. That said, there is a very weak mid level wave approaching our west, and as a result we have seen some weak convection develop just recently near the Crazy Mountains and south of Billings. The potential for showers and non-severe storms will continue thru the evening, and even a bit overnight in our east, but the severe risk is greatly diminished at this point. JKL


Through tonight...

Severe Thunderstorm Watch has been issued through 02Z for Wheatland, Golden Valley and Musselshell Counties. Watch may be extended further S later this afternoon. Good setup for severe weather with strong trough overhead, surface CAPES of 1000-2000 J/kg, Bulk Effective Shear 35 to 50 kt and PWAT's around 1 inch with higher values over SE MT. Main threats are wind gusts to 70 mph and large isolated hail of 2 to 3 inches in diameter. A tornado or two cannot be ruled out, but 0-1 km SRH has been decreasing with successive HRRR runs, so this is a very isolated threat. Watch may be extended S into Yellowstone and nearby counties later this afternoon as low clouds scatter out.

Watch also issued for Sheridan County and Big Horn County til 03Z given an uptick in activity there. Main threats are damaging wind gusts to 70 mph and large hail with diameter up to 2 inches.

Saturday through Thursday...

Upper level ridging will settle in over the Northern Rockies on Saturday, resulting in hot and dry conditions with several locations nearing record highs. High temperatures will be in the 90s for much of the region with locations along the river valley most likely to hit 100 degrees (40-80% chance). A brief shortwave will flatten out the ridging Sunday evening, bringing the chance for isolated showers and thunderstorms. Westerly flow and ridging will rebuild into the new week with high temperatures in the upper 80s and low to mid 90s. Latest ensemble runs show a broad trough dipping into the PNW on Thursday. With this, high temps closer to normals are forecasted and an increase in the chance for precipitation (20-40%).



Isolated showers and thunderstorms will impact the area thru the evening, and even a bit overnight in the east, but the risk of severe thunderstorms has greatly diminished. Local MVFR is possible in any stronger showers or storms. Fog is possible overnight, especially east of the foothills, though there is only a 10-20% chance of fog impacting a TAF site. VFR will prevail on Saturday. JKL
