MISSOULA — Besides a few light snow showers in the Rockies this afternoon, most of the clouds moved out, and we were able to see a lot more sunshine.

The northwest corner did have a stubborn layer of cloud-cover which didn’t allow that sunshine through for too long.

Tomorrow we will not have as much of that blue sky shining through.

Clouds become widespread and a few rain and snow showers will even be falling through some parts of our area.

This will be very spotty showers, so we aren’t looking at a washout of any outdoor afternoon or evening plans you may have.

Snow will be minimal under these spotty showers in valleys, but mountains could see up to an inch of accumulation on peaks.

High pressure settles in by the end of the week, and we are still tracking the possibility of sunshine AND 50 degree highs in valleys by Friday.

Our next big push of moisture is scheduled to arrive on Saturday and will widespread rain and snow back to Western Montana’s forecast.
