Snow showers will diminish by Friday morning and there won't be much snow over the next week or so. Rather, a bunch of rare sunny November days are ahead. November is typically one of the cloudier months, so the climatological probability of several sunny days is low. Friday will have abundant sunshine with near normal temperatures in the 30s and 40s. A stiff west wind will gust up to 30mph across the plains. Saturday and Sunday will be very similar with mostly sunny skies and highs in the 30s and 40s. A minor system will move through western Montana on Monday with a few snow showers mainly over the mountains, any accumulation will be light and confined to the higher terrain. Another storm will approach on Tuesday with mostly cloudy skies. Strong wind over the plains will warm temperatures there into the 40s to around 50. A cold front will cut through the state Tuesday night and Wednesday morning. There may be a burst of snow, but accumulation in the lower elevations would be about 1" at best. Wednesday's weather will be more about the wind, which could make traveling a little pesky. Thanksgiving will be breezy and mostly sunny with highs in the 30s to around 40. It really looks like a great day. There will be warmer temperatures moving in on Friday and Saturday. Not much snow in the forecast...
Have a great day.
