MISSOULA - Sunshine has been hard to come by over the last few weeks, making our sunny Sunday afternoon seem all the more spectacular. It appears we'll see an extended break from the Pacific storms we've seen recently.
Our overnight sky will be partly cloudy allowing temperatures to drop into the upper teens to lower 20s Monday morning. A few valley locations will see dense fog, but most will not. Monday afternoon will be partly cloudy with a high in the high 30s to lower 40s.
The high pressure which will bring dry conditions on Monday will remain over the Northern Rockies on Tuesday and Wednesday. This will mean a continuation of a partly cloudy sky both day and night. Lows will drop into the lower to middle 20s. Afternoon highs will top off in the upper 30s in the Flathead and low 40s in Missoula.
Thursday and Friday will bring more cloud cover with a slightly better chance of rain showers. A shift in the jet stream will bring a much better chance of rain next weekend.
