Today's Forecast:
Temperatures will remain cool with highs in the middle and upper 30s under mostly sunny skies. Skies will stay clear for the evening and overnight hours leaving lows in the teen and single digits.

BOZEMAN: High: 39; Low: 17. Light wind and sunny skies will dominate the afternoon.

BUTTE: High: 31; Low: 5. After a cool start you should expect our daytime highs to slowly creep to the lower 30s for the afternoon.

DILLON: High: 38; Low: 18. Mainly sunny skies with a light wind for the afternoon.

WEST YELLOWSTONE: High: 38; Low: 9. Expect a cold morning with plenty of bright sunshine to help drive daytime temperatures back to the upper 30s.

While high pressure will dominate our forecast for the next few day with milder temperatures in the 40s and clear skies, we are turning our attention to a big change in our weather pattern as we move into next week. A particularly cold Pacific airmass is expected to slide into Montana by Monday bringing scattered snow showers and daytime highs in the 20s and 30s for the first part of the week. This could have some significant impacts to travel prior to Thanksgiving as our mountain passes could receive snow with snow showers possible into the Thanksgiving holiday across Montana.
