A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY has been issued for the Glacier area and along the Rocky Mountain Front until 12pm Tuesday.
A LAKE WIND ADVISORY is in effect for Fort Peck Reservoir until 8pm Tuesday.

This week will be a stormy one with rain, higher elevation snow, clouds and wind around each and every day. Low pressure will move through Montana on Tuesday with a mix of rain and snow in the lower elevations, and accumulating snow in the mountains. Most of the state will have overcast conditions. A few thunderstorms will develop in the afternoon. Highs will only be in the 40s and 50s in the lower elevations, but 20s and 30s in the mountains. Several inches of snow could accumulate over the mountain passes through the day. Wednesday will be another day with showers, storms and higher elevation snow for much of the state. The sun may come out for a brief period but otherwise expect another gray day. Highs will be in the 50s and 60s. Stronger west wind will develop in the afternoon. Thursday will have partly cloudy skies and warmer temperatures in the 60s until showers and thunderstorms move back through in the afternoon and evening. Another low pressure with rain and mountain snow will move through on Friday. The stormy stretch will take a break on Saturday with mostly sunny skies and highs in the 60s to around 70. Unfortunately on Sunday more wet weather is likely with scattered showers and thunderstorms under mostly cloudy skies. This is a rainy time of year, a wet period that is vital now ahead of the upcoming fire season.
Have a great day.
