Thursday’s Weather 8/2

Weather Blog

There is currently a red flag warning in effect for several counties in eastern Montana. This does go until the end of the day on Friday. The warning has been issued because if any fires do start they can easily spread due to low relative humidity, hot temperatures, and breezy winds.

Temperatures have struggled to increase in the central part of the state because of the cloud cover from earlier today and a few showers popped up on the radar. We are therefore, now expecting temperatures near 90 for the central region, but mid 90s are still possible for the western portion of the state. For tonight, we can expect lows to be right around the average temperature of the 60s and winds will remain on the breezy side.

High pressure continues to build across the area, but a few waves of energy is allowing for the potential to see a few showers and thunderstorms — a bigger chance is on Friday evening and into the overnight hours. At this time there is a marginal risk of severe weather for the central and eastern portions of North Dakota. But first, we can expect widespread 90s tomorrow and a mostly clear sky. As we head into the weekend — scattered showers and thunderstorms will remain in the forecast, but the temperatures will be in the 80s. An average high temperature is in the mid 80s and lows in the lower 60s. 

Thursday night, a partly cloudy sky with a southeast wind, gradually diminishing. Winds 5-15 mph. Lows in the 60s.

Friday, a few clouds to a partly cloudy sky with a chance of a few scattered showers and thunderstorms. Winds south at 5-10 mph. Highs in the 90s. 

Friday night, a light wind, from the southeast then shifting northwest, and lows in the lower 60s. Skies are likely to be mostly cloudy with a marginal threat of severe thunderstorms in the south central region.

Saturday, on and off showers and thunderstorms with a northwest/wind at 5-10 mph. Highs in the the 80s.

Saturday night, a few clouds with a west wind at 1-8 mph. Lows around 60 degrees.
