MISSOULA - Drier air has built in with a large, upper level ridge of high pressure. This has allowed for ample sunshine across most of Montana with the exception of the northwest quarter where low clouds are hanging on with light flurries.
Dry and fairly cold conditions will be felt for the rest of the work week for everyone, though. Highs will top out in the upper teens to low 20s with lows in the single digits and teens Thursday.
We'll likely see fog to start and eventually sunshine by the afternoon on Thursday.
As the high settles in, inversions will begin to strengthen. Morning fog could potentially become a problem and take some time to mix out, too. Otherwise, expect dry conditions this week with the chance of isolated snow showers Friday!
