Although flooding will not be worsening in the immediate future, there is still a FLOOD WARNING in effect in Lewis and Clark County until Thursday night.  A FLOOD ADVISORY has been issued for parts of Jefferson, Broadwater, and Meagher counties which will last until Monday night.  A FLOOD WATCH is in effect along the Musselshell river until tonight, when it will be upgraded to a FLOOD WARNING.

This week is starting out quiet as far as the weather is concerned.  Light showers in eastern Montana will subside as the day goes on, and clear weather will remain for the end of Monday into Tuesday.  Warmer temperatures, however, will increase snowmelt this week, and with another chance of showers coming through Wednesday evening, the flooding concerns will amp up again.

Enjoy the sunshine today!

A proud graduate of the University of Missouri, Katie chose to major in meteorology when a severe winter storm hit her college town, canceling class for almost a week. She was taking an introductory meteorology course and was fascinated learning how and why the storm came through. After college, Katie moved to Madrid, Spain to teach English for a year, enjoying the mild Mediterranean climate. However, Katie is no stranger to severe weather. Growing up in St. Louis, she has seen everything from flash flooding and funnel clouds to extreme thunderstorms and even thundersnow! But even with all of this experience, nothing could prepare her for winter in Montana. Despite the harsh winter, Katie is excited to forecast and learn about mountain weather patterns, and to live in a state with such fantastic mountains and top-notch stargazing. Katie is the meteorologist on Daybreak, every morning at 6.
