BOZEMAN – A weak disturbance will move through the state tonight into Monday morning producing a few showers and higher mountain snow flakes. NW Montana higher mountains have the best chance for accumulating snow over the next 24 hours.

High-pressure will dominate the weather pattern Tuesday into Wednesday and with it will come a quiet weather pattern with warming temperatures. A stronger SW flow aloft will help temperatures jump up to where we should be this time of year on Wednesday and that is in the 60s.


A slower moving Pacific storm system will push a cold front into the Pacific NW Wednesday and that front will begin to impact far western Montana by Thursday. Behind this front an upper level trough will develop and bring back several days of cool and wet weather to end the week and continue into the weekend.

Temperatures will once again fall below normal by the end of the week and snow levels could lower to some higher elevated valley floors by Saturday, i.e. Butte.

A wide variety of weather conditions for SW Montana this week so please check back in with your STORMTracker Weather team for updates on changes that could develop this week into the weekend.
