A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY continues for the Beartooth and Absaroka Mountains. The Beartooth Highway has been closed because of snow. A FLOOD WATCH and FLOOD ADVISORY are in effect for northeast Montana as heavy rain and wind will hit there overnight. Elsewhere conditions are improving dramatically as the storm is clearing central and western areas. Some dense fog is possible tonight into Thursday morning. Thursday will be a mostly sunny and warmer day for much of the state. Highs will climb into the 60s and 70s. This won't just be a one-day stand, as nice weather will continue through the weekend. Friday will be partly cloudy, warm and breezy. An isolated few thunderstorms are possible in the afternoon and evening but most of the state will be dry. Highs will be in the 70s. Saturday will be a dry, partly cloudy day with highs in the 70s to around 80. Sunday summer is not giving up as temperatures will warm into the 80s under mostly sunny skies. Debris burn bans are being lifted in some areas of the state after all of this significant precipitation. However the fire danger will be an issue again especially with all of the dry, cured grass and weeds. Please be careful. The next storm will arrive late Monday with a mild amount of rain and cooler temperatures.
Have a great day!
