Sunday's Forecast:
Temperatures will be chilly to start the day with highs slowly working back to the middle 20s for the afternoon. There is a chance of some light snow developing through the afternoon for extreme western Montana with little accumulation expected. Winds will remain light and variable through most of the day.

BOZEMAN: High: 26; Low: 6. After a cold start with broken cloud cover for the morning our highs will stay in the middle 20s for the afternoon.

BUTTE: High: 25; Low: 2. Cold temperatures to start your Sunday. Light snow is possible late in the afternoon.

DILLON: High: 23; Low: 9. Isolated light snow is possible with little accumulation expected.

WEST YELLOWSTONE: High: 14; Low: -6. Temperatures will remain cold with light wind and partly cloudy skies.

Several systems are churning in the Pacific right now, and a weak cold front is expected to move through the west early next week. While we aren’t likely to see that cold front make a huge impact for the region, the moisture associated with that low will drive the potential for snow back into western Montana by Tuesday night and Wednesday. Current weather model runs are keeping most of the accumulation between 0.5” and 2.0” for most of the area through New Year’s Day. There are several chances for snow on Thursday and Friday in western Montana that will add to those totals.
