The good news is tomorrow is Friday, the weather will be nice, there’s a 3 day weekend, and our wildfire season is all but finished. The bad news…(for some) is that more snow is in the forecast. By Friday morning, most of the snow will be moving out of northeast Montana. That’s where a WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY has been issued for into Friday morning. Friday will be mostly sunny with highs in the low 50s, but 30s and 40s in the mountains. The start of Columbus Day Weekend will be gloomy as Saturday will be cloudy with a mix of rain and snow. Snow will mainly fall above 5000′ and a couple inches are possible. Some snow will mix in at times below 5000′. Sunday will have some sunshine, but also a mix of rain and snow showers. Eastern Montana will have more clouds with areas of rain and snow. Temperatures will top out in the 40s to around 50, but only stay in the 20s and 30s in the higher mountains. Monday will be the calm before the next storm, with partly cloudy skies and highs in the 40s and low 50s. Beginning Tuesday and potentially continuing into Thursday, widespread snow is becoming more and more likely. Temperatures will be cold enough to support accumulating snow in the lower elevations, with significant accumulation in the mountains.
Have a great day!
