After a great start to Memorial Day Weekend there is a good chance to see showers and thunderstorms later tonight. Thunderstorms will start developing between 7-9 pm CDT in eastern Montana — then as the wave of energy comes closer — thunderstorms will progress to North Dakota. With these thunderstorms some of them can become severe — large hail and damaging winds will be the biggest threats. As the wave of energy moves out – the storm potential will decrease by the morning hours. For Sunday, we will remain mostly sunny through the day then another round of thunderstorms will take place. Sunday afternoon also has a slight risk of severe weather. In fact, there is a threat of thunderstorms nearly every day this upcoming week — including Memorial Day. In terms of temperatures — it’ll stay in the 70s and 80s — but becoming more seasonable by next weekend with – yes – another chance of rain. Overall, this week will remain fairly active and for an up to date forecast stay with the KX Storm Team to keep you ahead of the storm. An average high temperature for mid May is around 70 degrees and lows in the mid 40s.
