Severe thunderstorms could hit SW Montana again this afternoon and at 1pm the Storm Prediction Center has a slight risk from Bozeman to Missoula northward.
Thunderstorms will likely produce very heavy rainfall which could lead to flash flooding, ponding on roadways both are very dangerous especially for those traveling.
Thunderstorms will also likely produce wind gusts up to or over 60 mph which can produce considerable property damage.
Thunderstorms this afternoon could also produce large damaging hail.
At 1pm thunderstorms are beginning to develop over the mountains and will be intensifying as the afternoon heats up.
We are waiting to see if the SPC issues a severe thunderstorm watch. Before the storms hit now is a good time to prepare for the storms by moving vehicles in a garage, gathering up and storing anything that might get picked up by strong winds in your yard and plan to monitor the weather for the severe storms.
You can track the storms on your computer by visiting the STORMTracker Interactive weather page, follow us on facebook (KXLF or KBZK) and watch our stations for severe weather crawls and cutins if nessary with Chief Meteorologist Mike Heard.
