Yes, two warm-ups are on the way for Montana. Of course that means a cool down between, but that will only be one day of cooler weather. The first warmup comes on Friday with a chinook wind developing that will push temperatures up through the 50s to around 60, melting some snow on the ground. The wind will be strong out of the west and southwest up to 30mph, but there are no watches or warnings for the wind. Saturday will be the "cooldown" day as a cold front drops south out of Canada with areas of light snow. This front does not have a ton of moisture to work with but will produce said snow through the day. With highs warming into the 40s for most areas, the snow won't accumulate much and could mix with some rain in the lower elevations. The mountains and areas along the Rocky Mountain Front could see 1-3". Some areas of light snow will continue Saturday night into early Sunday morning, but skies will break up allowing sunshine to warm temperatures back into the 50s to around 60. The 2nd warmup will continue through early next week with temperatures rising through the 60s and possibly into the low 70s by Tuesday. The next storm will bring clouds, wind, showers and isolated thunderstorms later Wednesday. Cooler temperatures will bring a mix of rain and snow showers back across the state on Thursday.
Have a great day!
