Happy Monday,

Montana is experiencing some typical fall weather, and this pattern should continue for the foreseeable future.  There will be changes from cooler/cloudier days to warmer/sunny days, but there does not appear to be any dramatic storms like last week’s record snowstorm on the Hi-Line.  Some people are still without power from that storm.  Tuesday will be a warmer day, but there will be more clouds and a persistent wind.  Highs will be in the 50s and 60s, with southwest wind up to 30mph across the prairies.  Wednesday, a cold front will move through the state with mostly cloudy skies and scattered showers of rain and mountain snow.  The wind will remain, and high temperatures will be cooler in the 40s and 50s.  Thursday, a cooler Canadian airmass will limit highs in the 40s to around 50, 20s and 30s in the mountains.  The atmosphere will be cool enough for some snow showers even in the valleys in the plains.  Only the mountains should get a coating of snow.  Friday, a weak storm could spread a period of mixed rain and snow in parts of the state.  Highs will be cooler, in the 30s and 40s.  A few snow showers could linger into Saturday morning, but the weekend will be blustery and crisp.  Highs Saturday will be in the 40s and 50s, but climb into the 50s and 60s for Sunday and the beginning of next week.

Enjoy Autumn!
