MISSOULA — Some of us where able to see the full “worm” supermoon last night and early this morning, but if you didn’t get a chance to catch it, you’re in luck.

Skies stay mostly clear which means you can see the nearly-full moon’s brightness light up tonight’s skies.

Tomorrow will be a similar weather setup as today’s, and the forecast is mostly clear skies with temperatures rising to the upper 40s and low 50s tomorrow afternoon.

Moisture moves back into the forecast on Wednesday. Temperatures still top out in the mid to upper 40s, but expect mostly cloudy skies followed by rain and snow mixing in throughout valleys as snow continues to fall in mountains.

Thursday clears up once again and sunshine returns.

A big change returns to the forecast Friday afternoon/evening into the weekend.

Models are showing a big trough that dips down from the north bringing wind, snow, and much colder air.

Temperatures are likely to take a significant drop with the arrival of this weekend system. Highs will be in the upper teens and low 20s on Saturday, and lows are likely to dip down to the single digits and negatives Saturday night.

While this is still a long way out, it may be a good idea to keep this in the back of your mind if you have travel plans this weekend.

We don’t want to hype this system up this far out, but we will definitely be keeping an eye on this weekend’s system as we head further into the week.
