MISSOULA — We saw a lot of rain yesterday through Western Montana.
Anywhere from 1-3+” were recorded from local reports across the area.
Records were set yesterday in Kalispell for the amount they received over the 24-hour period.
The last record was set in 1986 for that same date where the maximum amount of rain recorded was .73”.
Yesterday, Kalispell broke that record with a total of .77” of rain.
Most of this morning was dry, and the West-Central Montana saw a peak of sunshine through the morning hours.
Tonight, clouds build in and rain showers redevelop over the area.
Expect more showers to last through the late-evening hours, but those move out overnight.
Some dense, patchy fog can be expected as we wake up tomorrow morning again- especially in low-lying areas such as valleys.
Wednesday will bring a few more isolated showers to our forecast, but these will mostly develop across the southwest and across West-Central Montana in the afternoon hours.
Temperatures will stay cooler tomorrow- only topping out in the low to mid 60s.
A short-lived ridge builds in through the area Thursday into Friday.
This will allow for a lot more sunshine and warmer temperatures to return.
