Strong to Severe Thunderstorms Possible for the Northern Rockies on Sunday
An upper level trough will continue to move eastward toward the Northern Rockies. A weak surface disturbance located over Canada will be the primary area of concern with southerly winds pulling in warm, moist air, which will help destabilize the atmosphere. Strong to severe thunderstorms are likely to develop in this region over areas of higher terrain, or along and ahead of the cold front. Severe wind gusts and possibly some hail are expected.
