First Alert Forecast: Showers for some, cooler temperatures for all

WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY for areas above 6000 feet in Glacier National Park.  A few inches of snow will be possible along with gusty winds and colder temperatures.

A storm system dropping out of Canada will bring colder temperatures, rain and higher elevation snow. The best chance of rain today will be in northwest, around Kalispell and Glacier Park.  A few showers may develop as far south as the Missoula area with only a slight chance in the southwest in Bozeman and Butte.  Temperatures will be well below normal with highs ranging from the the 50s in Kalispell to the 60s in Missoula, Butte and Bozeman.  Rainfall of a tenth to a half inch is possible from the Mission Valley north through the Flathead to the Canadian border.

This storm will exit the region tonight. Clouds will be on the decrease this late this afternoon into the evening hours.  The lack of clouds will make for a cold start Thursday morning.  Low temperatures will drop to freezing around Kalispell and Butte to a few degrees above freezing in Missoula and Bozeman.

Nice weather will return Thursday through the weekend.  Sunny, warmer days and clear, chilly nights can be expected during this period.  Lows in the 30s to lower 40s with highs in the upper 60s and 70s Friday and the 70s to around 80 Saturday and Sunday.
