First Alert 48 Hour Forecast

Isolated showers and storms will appear in Southwest Montana Monday evening, otherwise, conditions will remain fair.

We are tracking a cold front that will impact the region Tuesday.  We expect more moisture to get across the divide and into Northwest Montana for some much needed rain in the area.  Temperatures will remain in the  70s and 80s with lows in the upper 40s and low 50s. Due to the threat of lightning from these storms, a Fire Weather Watch will be in place for Tuesday afternoon in the Kootenai National Forest, encompassing an area from Kalispell to Libby and Troy.

Southwest Montana will have a chance for a shower midweek, with widespread showers and storms by Friday and Saturday. We will warm up in our western counties late week to highs in the 90s.
