The next storm arrived Tuesday afternoon with rain and high mountain snow. After significant rain over the weekend, ahead of this new storm a FLOOD WATCH has been issued for northeast Montana into Thursday. Rain will spread through much of the state overnight Tuesday into Wednesday. Snow levels will drop to near 8,000' in the central and southern mountain ranges. Wednesday will start out soggy with light to moderate rain for most of central and southern Montana. Some heavy rain will push through into northeast Montana but the Hi-Line from Glacier to Havre will generally be dry with increasing sunshine. As the low slowly pulls away by afternoon, some breaks in the cloud cover will develop and conditions will slowly dry out. Another pattern change develops on Thursday. The large trough and stormy pattern will move out allowing sunshine and warmer temperatures to move in. Highs will crack 70 on Thursday under mostly sunny skies. Friday a weak system may trigger an isolated shower or storm up along the Hi-Line but most of the state will be warm and dry with an increasing wind. This weekend in the next to last weekend of summer and the weather will not disappoint. There will be more sunshine than clouds and highs will be above average in the 70s to around 80. The next series of storms will likely approach late Monday into Tuesday with another shot of rain and mountain snow.
Have a great day.
