MISSOULA — Our dry, cool and quiet weather pattern will continue Tuesday with highs in the upper 20s to low 30s.
Even though cold air is in place, the center of the low pressure system is currently sitting in the desert southwest. This means bits and pieces of energy will be able to break off and move north, however, with lack of structure and strength, there is very little chance of accumulating snow through the week and into the weekend across the northern Rockies.
The best chances to see some minor accumulations will be in the mountains. A few of these showers may be able to reach the valley floors Wednesday night/Thursday morning and again Friday morning with very little to no impacts from snow expected.
Temperatures will begin to warm a bit by the end of the week and weekend with highs returning to the upper 30s and low 40s. With the current location of the low pressure and expected warming temperatures our dry and mild weather pattern is expected to continue with no major winter storms on the horizon.
