MISSOULA — We struggled to reach the low 30s once again today.

Most of Western Montana stayed below freezing Wednesday afternoon.

After Kalispell’s previous two-night record streak, Missoula was the city to beat a record last night.

Missoula’s old record low for October 30 th was set in 1991 at 4 degrees, but last night we dropped to the low single digits and beat the record with a low of 1 degree.

Lows in will be in the upper single digits and low teens throughout Western Montana tonight.

We will not come as close to our previous records though.

A slow warming trend continues tomorrow.

Highs across the western part of the state will top out in the mid 30s- finally breaking our sub-freezing stretch.

Thursday’s highs are still a good 10-15 degrees below average.

Expect a lot more cloud cover tomorrow afternoon.

Most areas will be partly sunny to mostly cloudy throughout the afternoon.

Halloween night promises to be a warmer evening than the previous few nights (but still chilly compared to averages!)

Lows on Thursday night will drop to the teens which is around a 10 degree warm up compared to lows from this weekend and early this week.

By Saturday, temperatures will still be below average, but highs continue on a slow warming trend to top out in the mid 40s.

We are watching our next winter weather system moving in on Sunday.

Temperatures will once again take a drop at the start of next week.

Two system are expected to pass through our area next week- all resulting in temperature drops, so this is something we will be watching for as we head closer to the weekend.
