MISSOULA, Mont. -

Most of the rain, snow, and graupel showers will be tapering off after midnight. After the wet weather ends, the cloud cover will start to break up a bit overnight. Low temperatures drop a little below the freezing mark.

It has been a long time since all of western Montana was dry for an entire weekend. That scenario might actually play out this weekend.

Several rays of sunshine spread out on both Saturday and Sunday. Some fairweather clouds will be passing by, but at worst I'll call it partly cloudy. A warming trend kicks in too. Thermometers head to average levels (50s) for the first half of the weekend before soaring into bonus territory (60s) on Sunday.

The next wave of wet weather rolls into the region on Monday. We're mainly staring at a valley rain/mountain snow setup with this storm system. With the shower activity comes a cooling trend. The ups and downs of spring in Montana continue!
