Warm weather combined with additional chances for showers and thunderstorms will aggravate flooding risks across SW Montana.

The above on demand STORMTracker video forecast with Meteorologist Carson Vickroy will walk you through the forecast hour by hour for next 24 hours so you can have an idea of what your Friday will look like.

City by City Forecast:

BOZEMAN: LOW: 47°; HIGH FRIDAY: 77°. Any shower activity will die out for the night. However a slight chance for a few showers and thunderstorms tomorrow afternoon. Chance of Precipitation: 20%

BUTTE: LOW: 43°; HIGH FRIDAY: 75°. A few showers and thunderstorms possible to the south and west of Butte. More showers and t-storms are possible tomorrow afternoon. A few storms may have small hail and gusty winds. Chance of Precipitation: 30%

DILLON: LOW: 44°; HIGH FRIDAY: 76°. Drying out this evening. A few showers and thunderstorms possible tomorrow afternoon. Chance of Precipitation: 20%

WEST YELLOWSTONE: LOW: 36°; HIGH FRIDAY 70°. A few evening showers are possible this evening. Clearing out for tomorrow.


The storm that brought us all of the rain yesterday will lift to the Northeast tonight which will limit shower and thunderstorm chances tomorrow. However a storm system just off the coast of northern California will slowly move into the Great Basin which will increase shower and thunderstorms across the area for both Saturday and Sunday. With more rain and snow melt expected, the flooding risk may be on the increase heading into this weekend and next week. Stay tuned for more updates from the KBZK and KXLF STORMTracker weather team.
