After a prolonged period of usually quiet weather, Mother Nature is making up for lost time. Storms are lined up in the Pacific and virtually every day this week will have inclement weather. Tuesday looks like the nicest day, but it will be brisk and breezy. A few snow showers will move over the mountains. Skies will be partly cloudy, and this will be the most sunshine Montana gets for nearly the next week. Wednesday is Halloween and the weather does not look very nice. An area of low pressure will increase showers and snow above 5000′ through the afternoon and evening. It will be chilly, wet and windy for trick or treaters. Bundle up if you’re going to be out, and please use caution while driving. Visibility will be reduced in some rain and wind, so be careful of those little ghouls and goblins out and about. Thursday, scattered rain and snow showers will continue. Mountain passes will start seeing accumulation and road surfaces could be slippery Wednesday and Thursday. Friday, another storm will cross the state with wind, showers and higher elevation snow. Right now, Saturday will be the “nicer” out of the two weekend days, but it will still be windy and mostly cloudy. Sunday, another big storm will likely produce rain in the lower elevations and snow in the mountains. Colder air on Monday will likely bring snow down to the valley floors and plains.
Have a great day!
