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.
