MISSOULA — Clouds move in tonight, and temperatures become chilly once again.
Lows tonight/Wednesday morning will be in the teens and single digits.
Some negative single digits are possible again closer to the Divide.
Bundle up before heading out the door Wednesday morning, because temperatures only warm to the low 30s and upper 20s again tomorrow afternoon.
The average temperature this time of year in Missoula is 35-degrees, so the cooler than average trend conditions through our midweek point.
Our cooler forecast is short-lived, because on Thursday warmer air starts to trickle into the state.
Our cooler air from the north is replaced by warmer air from the southwest.
This southwest air will warm highs up to the upper 30s and low 40s Thursday through the weekend.
Southwest air doesn’t just mean warmer air.
We add in isolated snow and rain chances into the forecast as this pattern shift occurs.
Isolated snow showers are possible Wednesday for the northwest.
More isolated chances return to the forecast Friday for the entire area.
We will keep an eye on moisture amounts and types as we head toward the end of the week!
