WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY through Wednesday night for western Flathead, Lincoln, Sanders and Mineral Counties. Accumulations of slushy snow 1 to 2 inches are possible from west of Kalispell to Lincoln and Eureka south to the Thompson Falls areas.
A large storm system is located over Washington. It will remain nearly stationary through Friday. Spokes of moisture and energy will rotate around the storm. Each will bring a few rounds of showers and thunderstorms to western Montana. Those counties in the advisory are close to the core of the storm where colder air exists. That is why those areas will see snow, with several inches in the mountains. Outside of the precipitation, skies will be mostly cloudy.
Lows in the 30s with highs in the 50s, although 60s east of the divide around Bozeman. We should have a brief break from the rain on Saturday before more showers form Sunday and Memorial Day. Highs in the 60s this weekend.
