Snow and rain are moving out after a pretty soggy Tuesday.  This snow may be the last for a while as a big warmup is on the way.  The warmest temperatures so far this year are likely to spread across the state on Thursday and Friday.  Wednesday will be an unsettled day with mixed rain and snow showers, an isolated thunderstorm, and a mix of clouds and sun.  The wind will be rather strong out of the west, gusting higher than 30mph at times.  Highs will be warmer, getting up into the 50s.  Thursday will be partly cloudy with highs in the 60s for most towns.  Southwest wind will be gusty off of the Rocky Mountain Front.  Friday will be even warmer with highs reaching the 60s and 70s.  Some areas of eastern Montana will come close to 80!  But all good things must come to an end, and that end is Friday afternoon and evening as a cold front kicks off showers and thunderstorms.  Showers, storms and mountain snow will move through the state Friday night into Saturday morning.  By Saturday afternoon, partly cloudy and windy conditions will take over the state.  Easter Sunday looks nice with mostly sunny skies and highs in the 50s.  Pleasant spring weather will continue into early next week.

Have a great day!
