MISSOULA — Happy Thanksgiving!

While most of us will be mostly cloudy this afternoon and evening, a snowflake or two in the upper elevation valleys and mountains is still possible.

Snow accumulation is expected to be minimal tonight even in the highest elevations, but there is still a chance of slick roads.

High pressure builds in and we will see some sunshine back in the forecast Friday.

This means we will also be decently warm for this time of year.

Highs on Friday return to the low to mid 40s!

Saturday another fast-moving system pushes through the northwest.

This will create a few breezy conditions and snow back to Lookout Pass and Marias Pass.

Drive carefully as roads will be slick and visibility will be reduced from blowing snow.

Saturday’s moisture moves out, and our area sees high pressure build back in.

High pressure this weekend means we could be seeing chances of inversions forming.

Degraded air quality is possible late this weekend through next week has inversions set up.
