Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Great Falls MT 159 PM MDT Sun May 28 2023
Scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms will continue through the afternoon today. Expect a few additional showers and thunderstorms on Memorial Day, but most of the area will remain dry for the holiday.
The final piece of a broad upper level trough that has been stuck over the NW CONUS for the last week or so will finally move through the area over the next two days. This is resulting in widely scattered showers and thunderstorms across the area, particularly south of a line from Great Falls to Lewistown. These showers and storms will continue to slowly push eastward through the day, and could bring up to a quarter inch or so of additional rainfall through around 7 this evening, with showers and storms dying out shortly thereafter.
As the base of the upper level trough pushes to our east on Tuesday, our upper level flow will turn more westerly, allowing for a bit of a reprieve, save for a few isolated showers that are able to pop up during the afternoon heating. Wednesday will be similar as westerly flow aloft continues, with isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms across the Southwestern Mountains. -Ludwig
Thursday into the weekend... Ensemble and cluster guidance are in pretty good agreement through the work week, with a ridge of high pressure developing across the midsection of CONUS/Canada with a trough developing across the western CONUS. Resulting flow aloft in this pattern is south to southwesterly, which points towards more rounds of showers and thunderstorms each afternoon and evening through Friday. Deterministic guidance suggests better moisture will sneak into the region Thursday into Friday from the east. 48-hour probabilities for 1 inch of rain from Thursday morning through Saturday morning are generally in the 20-40% range for North-central Montana, and 10% or less across Southwest Montana.
Uncertainty develops in the pattern heading into next weekend, but most solutions favor some component of southerly flow aloft, which would continue chances for showers and thunderstorms. -AM

Predominately VFR conditions prevail across North-central and Southwest Montana, with the exception of some MVFR conditions in lowered cloud ceilings. Showers and thunderstorms are expected to develop, peaking between 28/19z and 29/00z across portions of Central Montana briefly reducing visibility and cloud ceilings to MVFR conditions. Instances of lighting and small hail as well as some mountain obscuration will be expected during this time. Shower and thunderstorm activity decreases quickly thereafter, exiting the region from northwest to southeast. - Pierce
