BOZEMAN – Arctic air will loosen its grip over Montana beginning Monday. Temperatures will remain cooler than normal for most of the week and could reach normal levels by the following weekend.

A slow-moving Low-pressure system will continue to produce areas of rain and snow from central California Monday and hit the central Rockies by mid-week. This storm system should remain well south of Montana but could lift moisture up into SW Montana Tuesday into Wednesday.

Mountain passes on the MT/ID/WY state lines will have the best chance for scattered snow showers over the next 3 days. Bigger travel issues are likely in Idaho, Utah, Wyoming and Colorado this week.
