Potential for Thunderstorms across the Northern Rockies and Western High Plains on Thursday
A weak area of low pressure is expected to be situated over eastern Montana along a stalled front. Strong wind shear will be in place to the east of the low and as a result, there will be a low risk for isolated tornadoes. More widespread thunderstorms capable of producing large hail and damaging winds are forecast during the afternoon. Storms will likely develop across west central Montana during the early to mid afternoon. By late afternoon, severe thunderstorms are likely to develop and expand into eastern Montana and the western High Plains through the evening.

Risk for Thunderstorms Friday from the Northern and Central Plains into the Midwest
A front will remain stalled across the western High Plains into the Upper Midwest on Friday. Weak disturbances will promote the development of thunderstorm clusters along and near the front. Storms weakening over Minnesota and Iowa may reorganize as they move eastward. However, additional storms may develop late Friday afternoon and evening along the front. Storms will likely extend from South Dakota southward into northern Kansas. Large hail and damaging winds will be the primary hazards with these storms.

A Look Ahead
Showers and thunderstorms will continue from the Mid Mississippi Valley eastward to the Mid Atlantic on Sunday as an area of low pressure and cold front continue to move eastward. On Monday, an area of low pressure will bring the potential for thunderstorms to portions of the Northern Plains and Upper Midwest. This activity will continue to move eastward into the Great Lakes and Ohio Valley on Tuesday. By Wednesday, showers and thunderstorms may develop across the Southeast.
