An AREAL FLOOD ADVISORY continues for Meagher County, specifically the north fork of the Smith River that is overflowing its banks.  A rainy Easter Weekend sums up Montana’s weather this April: consistently wet.  Precipitation has been above average for much of the state thus far, and active weather will continue for the final weekend of the month.  Unlike last weekend when rain was moderate and widespread, this week will only feature scattered showers and a few isolated thunderstorms.  Temperatures for the week will be consistently in the 50s and 60s for highs.  Tuesday will have a few isolated showers, otherwise it will be partly cloudy and windy.  Wednesday will have showers near Helena early in the morning, with scattered showers and thunderstorms hitting the Hi-Line later in the day.  Thursday will be quiet with regards to the showers, with mostly sunny skies early on becoming mostly cloudy later in the day.  Friday will see an increase in shower and thunderstorm activity across the state, but still the showers will be scattered.  The weekend will start off nice but turn stormy for the later half.  Saturday will be partly cloudy and cool, and a few showers are possible later in the afternoon.  Sunday, the final of April, will have a strong chance of wet snow in the lower elevations.  Chilly temperatures will continue into Monday.

Have a nice day.
