The dog days of summer continue across western Montana as July ends and we go through the first week of August. Very warm to hot days and cool nights can be expected across the region. Lows in the 50s with highs in the mid 80s to lower 90s in the Bozeman, Kalispell and Butte areas to the 90s in the Missoula area.
We continue to have mid and upper level moisture over the region. That, combined with surface heating during the afternoons and evenings will bring a chance of isolated showers and storms to the region. The best chance Friday will be from Missoula to Butte southward into Idaho.
