MISSOULA — Our few glimpses of sunshine come to an end tonight.

Rain and snow move back into Western Montana Tuesday night and we ride through the night Tuesday into Wednesday morning.

Snow stays in upper elevations tonight.

Valley lows will not even drop below freezing, so we may see a few snowflakes mix in with rain, but little to no accumulation is expected through Wednesday morning in valleys.

Upper elevations will see a bit more accumulation.

Seeley/Swan Lake and Philipsburg and upper elevation valleys close to the divide and on the western side of Western Montana will see light accumulation and will wake up to snow falling.

During Wednesday afternoon, temperatures rise to the mid to upper 40s.

Snow levels will rise throughout the afternoon, so valleys will continue to see rain.

This mountain snow and valley rain will last through Thursday afternoon.

Highs Thursday take a slight drop to the upper 30s and low 40s.

These are the highs we will see for the weekend.

Isolated chances of rain and snow are possible Thursday night, but a drier trend moves in for the beginning of the weekend.
