This morning broke records for cold temperatures in October. Cut Bank, Browning, Choteau, and Great Falls, along with many other locations in north-central Montana, observed the coldest-ever recorded temperatures for October 1st this morning. The chill will just barely warm up this afternoon, with temperatures topping out in the mid-30s and low 40s. Tomorrow, as high pressure moves in, sunnier and warmer weather will prevail. This calm pattern will continue through Thursday, but more unsettled and wet weather will arrive by the end of the week.
A combination of rain and snow is possible for Friday and Saturday. The weekend will be off to a not-so-nice start, but we won't get quite as much precipitation as last weekend. Sunday will begin the start of more dry fall-like weather.
