A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY has been issued above 6000 feet for the Little Belt Mountains and the Northern Rocky Mountain Front.  1 to 4 inches of snowfall is possible, with localized amounts up to 8 inches.

On this day last year, high temperatures were in the 90s and Montana was in the midst of a devastating and smoky fire season.  Today, however, will be a much different story.  Most areas in Montana have either good or moderate air quality today, thanks to low pressure and rain.  Temperatures will top out in the 50s in the lower elevations, and rain will continue throughout the day.  Overnight lows Monday night will be in the 30s.  If you have outdoor plants, it would be wise to bring them inside tonight.  The moisture will clear out by Tuesday, and the rest of the work week will be clear and dry.

First day of school: Partly cloudy skies, calm winds, and temperatures in the high 70s/ low 80s.

Labor Day Weekend: The weekend should stay dry, with temperatures in a comfortable range, the high 70s/ low 80s.

Stay warm out there today!
