BOZEMAN – A pattern change will bring a Fall-like weather pattern to Montana this weekend.
An upper-level trough is pushing into the Pacific NW Friday afternoon and that trough will dig into Montana Friday night and Saturday producing cooler temperatures, scattered showers, a few thunderstorms and hopefully better air quality.
We all should see some rain on Saturday but this storm is not likely to produce moderate to heavy rainfall. The only exception will be around isolated thunderstorms as a few of those rumbles could produce brief heavy rain. The good news is cool and wet weather is in the forecast.
This storm will quickly exit the region by Sunday and a new building High-pressure ridge will develop on Monday and with it more wildfire smoke and warmer than normal temperatures next week.
