Montana temperatures to soar mid-week

Rivers will continue to run high this week- Dennis Bragg photo(MISSOULA)- After more thunderstorms rumbled across the Northern Rockies to finish the weekend, forecasters are expecting a dramatic rise, and then fall, in temperatures this first full week in June. 

While the northern half of the state was waking up to cloudy skies Monday morning, conditions were rapidly clearing across Southwest and West Central Montana, with highs expected to rebound into the mid to upper 70s. 

But the more dramatic change is still to come.

Forecasts are for many locations, especially in the Western Montana valleys, to climb back into the low-to-mid 80s Tuesday, and then top 90-degrees for the first time this year on Wednesday. That's expected to release some more significant runoff from snowmelt, with rivers and streams experiencing more high water this week. 

The heat wave won't last however. By the second half of the week, thunderstorms will develop and weekend highs are only expected to be in the upper 50s with showers Saturday and Sunday.
