Rain, higher elevation snow and wind have increased through Tuesday.  A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY is in effect for the central mountains through Wednesday.  A WINTER STORM WARNING is in effect for the southern mountains into Thursday morning.  The good news is most of the rain and snow will fall overnight into Wednesday morning, with slow clearing through hump day.  By Wednesday afternoon, sun will break through the clouds for much of Montana as the precipitation remains confined to the southern areas of the state by late in the day.  Thursday will be a much nicer day with partly cloudy skies and a few isolated showers but there will be more sunshine than we’ve seen in a while.  Temperatures will also warm up into the 60s.  Friday will be similar with some sun, a few afternoon showers and thunderstorms, along with warmer temperatures in the 60s.  Memorial Day Weekend will be unsettled but the wet weather will be more on and off than always on.  Saturday afternoon with have scattered showers and thunderstorms.  Sunday likely is the wettest, cloudiest and coolest day, but a little sun could break through the clouds at times.  Memorial Day will also have more clouds than sun with scattered showers and thunderstorms.  There will be some dry periods in there as well.  Highs will be warmer in the 60s.  After the holiday, temperatures warm up into the 70s for next Tuesday.

Have a great day.
