MISSOULA — A weak weather system Monday will bring very light snow to the mountains along with the valleys of northwest Montana. Mountain passes along the Montana/Idaho border can expect accumulations of around 1" while the valleys see very little to no accumulation. West-central and southwest Montana will stay mostly dry with cloudy skies and highs in the 30s.
Tuesday will be a mostly dry day with maybe a few snow showers lingering in the mountains. Highs will be in the 30s to low 40s.
A slightly stronger system will bring snow showers back to the forecast Wednesday. With that being said, impacts look to remain minor. Accumulating snow of a few inches can be expected over those mountain passes with very little to no snow accumulation in the valleys.
Starting Thanksgiving and continuing through the weekend a quiet weather pattern looks to set up over the northern Rockies. Highs will be running right at seasonal averages topping out in the middle 30s to low 40s with a mix of sun and clouds overhead.
