MISSOULA — Snow showers will develop in northwest Montana overnight and spread southeast into the morning hours as our next system moves in.

Winter Weather Advisories are in place for the Kootenai/Cabinet, West Glacier and Lower Clark Fork regions as well as the Bitterroot/Sapphire Mountains from late Tuesday evening until 11 a.m. Wednesday. Accumulations of 1”-3” will be likely with gusty winds of 30-to-40 mph at times.

The highs will top out in the mid to upper 30s for Wednesday with breezy conditions and a few sun breaks expected late.

Thanksgiving looks to showcase mostly cloudy skies and highs in the upper 30s.

High pressure will build in for Friday with patchy morning fog expected. Otherwise, look for more sun than clouds and highs in the upper 30s to low 40s.

A quick-moving (and fairly weak) system is possible on Saturday for folks mainly north of I-90. Highs will be in the low 40s.

Quiet conditions look to prevail Sunday into early next week.
