A WINTER STORM WARNING is in effect for the higher elevations of western and southwest Montana.

The last storm system of spring will continue to spread rain and mountain snow through Montana over the next few days. While the snow will be confined to the higher elevations, at times snow levels could drop to around 5000' which would impact some of the mountain passes. At worst, some slushy snow could accumulate on the road surfaces. Otherwise, a healthy soaking of rain will occur for Wednesday. Steady to heavy rain in the morning will give way to more showers and thunderstorms through the afternoon. Thursday will be another stormy day with scattered showers and thunderstorms throughout the state. As temperatures moderate, snow levels will rise to above 8000' on Thursday. Friday, the last day of spring will still be unsettled. There will be scattered afternoon showers and thunderstorms, but skies will be partly cloudy and temperatures will be warmer. The first day of summer on Saturday will be a pretty day with mostly sunny skies and warmer temperatures. Father's Day on Sunday will be a partly cloudy and warm day but a few isolated thunderstorms are possible in the afternoon.
Have a great day!
