What a Weekend, but Flooding Still a Major Problem

March goes out like a lamb this weekend.  The final couple of days will have plentiful sunshine and warmer temperatures.  Flooding is still an issue for much of the state, and all of the snow from this past storm will be melting in the warmer weather.  Thus, a FLOOD ADVISORY will remain in effect for areas east of the Continental Divide, including Helena and Great Falls.  Northeast Montana is also under a FLOOD ADVISORY for minor flooding through the weekend.  The beginning of April will have another storm move through with a mix of rain and snow through much of the state.  Snow accumulation likely will be confined to the higher elevations, but the valleys and plains will see flakes as well as raindrops into Wednesday.  The extended forecast has storms lined up into the middle of April.  Storms will bring a mix of rain and snow to the lower elevations, at times there will be heavy snow in the mountains, and some of these storm systems will bring more wind than we’ve seen recently.  Warmer temperatures will be found as well as some colder spells.  It’s springtime in Montana.

Have a great weekend.
