While temperatures stayed below average for most of the state on Thursday, a significant warmup moved through much of Montana. So instead of being 50 degrees below normal, temperatures were only 10-15 below normal. That’s progress. Fairly quiet weather will continue for the next several days through the weekend. An area of low pressure will move through Idaho and Wyoming with the northern fringe putting down a few inches of accumulation along I-90 through Montana. Not much snow will accumulate north of this corridor, although a few snow showers are possible Friday evening as far north as Helena and Lewistown. This weekend looks very nice with a fair amount of sunshine and comfortable temperatures. Snow will move out of southeastern Montana early on Saturday, but there will be decent sunshine elsewhere through Saturday afternoon. Don’t forget to “spring forward” on Saturday night as Daylight Saving Time goes into effect. Sunday will be very sunny and a nice late winter day. The next chance for snow will come toward the middle of next week. However, the rest of March will have fairly quiet weather offering a much deserved break from stormy/frigid weather.
Have a great day!
