More rain in our future and high water!

What an active weather night last evening with thunderstorms, heavy rain, golf ball size hail and even a Tornado Watch for the Lewistown and Stanford areas for a time early in the evening.

We can expect to see additional rainfall, which is not helping the flood situation at all. Here is a graphic from the NWS about expected rain today.

NWS Weather Story

Rainfall amounts varied a lot. Just east of Great Falls golf ball size hail was reported and very heavy rain..even at Malmstrom AFB. The airport where moisture is officially measured only showed about .10″!

I hope you have a great day and evening.
