BOZEMAN – The next weather maker is currently sitting over British Columbia, Canada and will dig down the Pacific NW coast.
Ahead of this storm temperatures will warm up to near normal levels Monday. In fact, Monday will likely be the warmest temperature day for the upcoming work week.
Monday night an upper level trough will start to drop down into Montana and usher in a cooler and unsettled weather pattern through Wednesday.
Temperatures will be falling below normal Tuesday through Wednesday and snow levels will fall down to the valley floor by Wednesday morning.
Mountains will see the best opportunity for accumulating snow in this NW flow aloft and between Big Sky and Cooke City a foot or more is possible for the higher elevations.
Valleys could see a rain/snow mix Tuesday but look for snow by Tuesday night and Wednesday morning. Commutes will likely be impacted Wednesday morning especially over mountain passes.
