Episode Narrative Strong thunderstorms developed across northwest Montana ahead of an approaching upper level trough. The main threat with these storms was heavy rain and some hail. In one case, the thunderstorm sat stationary for an hour and dumped heavy rain over Hot Springs. This led to flash flooding in the area.
Event Narrative A slow moving thunderstorm dropped rainfall amounts of 1.59 inches up to an estimated 3.25 inches in a one to two hour period. Twenty five homes were flooded from runoff. One home owner had half their yard washed away with a shed also flooded.
