City by City Forecast:

BOZEMAN:  HIGH WEDNESDAY: 87°. LOW: 50°; A few afternoon thunderstorms are possible, especially to the south of the area. Otherwise another warm day is expected so if you have plans to go outside make sure you drink plenty of water. Chance of Precipitation: 30%.

BUTTE:  HIGH WEDNESDAY: 88°. LOW: 51°: A couple rumbles can’t be ruled out this afternoon, but most of the thunderstorms will be occurring to the SE of the area. Chance of Precipitation: 20%.

A Red Flag Warning has been issued for areas to the west of the divide where an increased fire danger is likely due to the presence of dry thunderstorms (thunderstorms that produce less than a tenth of an inch of rain). Otherwise, a dry and average weather pattern will be setting up across SW Montana for the foreseeable future. Stay tuned for more updates from the KBZK and KXLF STORMTracker weather team.
