Will the last day of April have any hints of Spring? Not quite. Snowfall accumulation will be concentrated in southeastern Montana, but there is a chance of some showers coming into the picture for north-central Montana later today. That won’t be the end of the scattered showers and overall gloomy conditions, though.  Wednesday and Thursday we’ll have more low elevation rainfall.  Friday looks like the day to watch, as things clear up for the end of the work week. Saturday afternoon into Sunday, temperatures will take a dive as a cold front approaches with more snow.  The first full week of May should be a little kinder to Montana, with warmer, drier weather on tap.

Great Falls’ low temperature this morning was 17 degrees, tying the record low set in 1909. Afternoon highs today will be in the upper 30s and low 40s.

Have a great day!
