HEAT TAKING HOLD ON MONTANA NEXT WEEK: Blistering heat is slated to begin building into the area again by the end of the weekend. A large area of high pressure will build into the area allowing highs in excess of 95° for the vast majority of the area. The high pressure will also keep any significant rain-makers from moving through most of Montana as well. We will hold the potential for a few pop-up afternoon thunderstorms, but the chance for significant rain in the area will be minimal starting on Sunday through late next week.
