An AREAL FLOOD ADVISORY continues for Meagher County.  This past storm was a record breaker for precipitation in areas off of the Rocky Mountain Front including Cut Bank.  Bozeman had a record amount of precipitation as well.  This storm produced a solid amount of rain and higher elevation snow for most of the state, but nothing too out of the ordinary for April in Montana.  As this storm is moving out of the southeast part of the state, it’s developed into a major blizzard for the front range of the Rockies out into the northern plains.  The next storm system is quickly moving into Montana.  This storm will not produce as heavy precipitation as the previous storm, but the next two days will be showery.  Some snow will move over and down the Continental Divide Wednesday night into Thursday.  Thursday will be a mostly cloudy day with scattered rain/snow showers over the lower elevations, with heavier mountain snow showers.  Friday will almost be a carbon copy with showers once again hitting the western half of Montana.  Highs will remain cooler than average in the 40s to around 50, 30s in the mountains.  This weekend will start out nice on Saturday with more sunshine and warmer temperatures in the 50s.  A few showers will move over the mountains later on Saturday as clouds increase.  Saturday will be the nicer out of the two weekend days, as Sunday will have wind, clouds, rain showers and higher elevation snow, along with a few thunderstorms over central and eastern Montana.  Precipitation may be heavy at times.  Monday will have fewer showers but it will be a windy start to the work week.

Have a great day.
