20080630 Wx Discussion I (1715Z)

Looks like another dry day here over the Front Range. Boring.

In Montana, some excitement could be had as high temperatures today will approach record levels. The NWS in Missoula is forecasting 93ºF in Butte today. I can see that and possibly a degree higher. The record stands at 92ºF.

Eureka and Libby, MT both saw 99ºF yesterday, topping out the state's high. In southwest Montana, Whitehall's RAWS station touched 97ºF. The same airmass is in place today and with temperatures not reaching as low as the previous morning, the thermometer is already climbing quite higher today than at the same time yesterday.

Butte, for example was 76ºF as of the 17Z ob yesterday. Today, it's 81º.

Could be a hot day. Will be tracking for records.
