Light snow will continue around Southwest Montana, the Southern Bitteroot Valley, and areas east of Missoula along I-90 and Highway 200 through early Wednesday. Expect anywhere from a dusting to an inch of accumulation in valleys with up to 2 inches over mountain passes. Missoula could see a few flurries, but Kalispell will remain dry.
Conditions clear by midday on Wednesday with highs right around freezing. A little light snow will impact the Kalispell area early Thursday morning with dry conditions elsewhere. Meanwhile, we will begin a slow warming trend with highs around the region reaching the upper 30s by the weekend.
Extensive moisture is likely late in the weekend. With warmer temperatures much of it will fall as rain with high elevations possibly seeing overnight snow or a mix of rain and snow. Forecast models continue to place us right on the edge of regions of cold and warm air; leaving a lot of uncertainty as to whether many locations will see rain or snow early next week.
