MISSOULA — Happy Saturday! Our last NWS issued advisory is set to expire Saturday afternoon, as the potential for snow decreases as will wind speeds. That said, we can still expect a few snowflakes flying around and very cold to frigid temperatures overnight into Sunday morning. Northwest Montana will see temperatures drop into the single digits. With a light breeze, this will transition to wind chill values just under the zero-degree mark. For folks south of Flathead Lake, lows will generally range in the mid-single digits to middle teens. Other than west-central and southwest Montana, where a light snow flurry or two may fall, clouds will slowly decrease giving some a little sunshine to go along with our very cold Sunday morning temperatures.
Sunday will be very pretty in northwest Montana with highs reaching the lower 30s under a mostly sunny sky. For the Missoula and Bitterroot valleys, we’ll see more clouds than sun with highs in the middle 30s.
The beginning of next week promises a mostly sunny to sunny sky with warming highs. Most will see highs in the middle 40s on Monday, with temperatures warming into the lower 50s for many by Tuesday under a sunny sky. Wednesday will bring an increase in clouds late in the day with highs in the upper 40s to lower 50s
Have a wonderful Sunday!
