MISSOULA- The next 24 hours will bring a touch of fall to Western Montana. A cool and mostly dry air mass will push through the area overnight and into early Friday.
Most areas will remain clear with this frontal passage, but a few of our northernmost areas (Whitefish, Eureka, and West Glacier) could see a few showers tonight and tomorrow morning.
The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for elevations above 7000 feet west of the Continental Divide in Glacier National Park. Also, a Lake Wind Advisory is in effect through tomorrow afternoon for Flathead Lake.
Expect highs ranging from the the low 60s in northern locations to lower 70s in southern areas.
Saturday will be sunny and mostly calm with highs ranging from 75 to 80 area-wide. Sunday will be sunny and warmer with most locations ranging from the lower to upper 80s.
