Happy November! After a very cold and snowy October, the weather will turn closer to average for the next week. Average in November does include snow and clouds, but also temperatures will be closer to average in the 40s and 50s. This weekend will be on the cloudier side across the state. A boundary will develop and act as a focal point for light areas of precipitation both Saturday and Sunday. Temperatures in the 40s for the lower elevations will be warm enough for a mix of rain and snow. The mountains especially in central Montana could have a few inches of accumulation. Whatever type of precipitation falls where you are will be very light and spotty. A larger area of steadier light snow is possible Sunday night into Monday, but only a coating up to a couple inches is possible. Another cold front with light snow is likely to move into Montana from Tuesday night into Wednesday. A few inches of snow at best are likely, and the cool down will only be brief. A general pattern change is likely for the end of next week as warmer Pacific air will move in and highs will climb through the 40s and into the 50s. Fall is not over yet.
Don't forget to set clocks back one hour on Saturday night as Daylight Saving Time ends. It is also a good time to change batteries in smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors.
Have a great weekend.
