Wednesday was a chilly, cloudy day but rain was spotty and generally light.  Low pressure will move up through the state overnight and through Thursday morning with a good amount of rain.  Some snow will fly above about 7000′ in some of the state’s mountain ranges.  Rainfall tonight and Thursday morning will be heaviest in the central and eastern Montana.  Thursday will have steady rain, possibly mixing with snow up near the Canadian border of northeast Montana.  The rest of the state will be mostly cloudy with scattered showers, an isolated thunderstorm and some higher elevation snow.  All rain will move out by late Thursday.  Highs will only be in the 40s and 50s.  Friday is the last full day of summer, and most of the state will have a pretty nice day.  Skies will be partly to mostly cloudy, but highs will be warmer in the 60s and 70s.  Saturday won’t be bad at all either.  Highs again will be in the 60s and 70s, but there will be a bit more high cloud cover.  The season officially changes at 7:54pm on Saturday, that’s when the north pole and hemisphere tilt away from the sun.  Sunday will be a mostly cloudy day with cooler temperatures and showers.  I had mentioned some snow possible for Monday, that storm seems to have changed and will come in later Tuesday into Wednesday.  It’s not a big storm, but it will be cooler which will bring snow levels down a bit lower.

Have a great day.
