First Alert 48 Hour Forecast

Another cold front will sweep through the area Sunday evening. Expect occasional wind gusts over 30 mph and isolated lightning. On the plus side, many areas north of Butte will see rain this evening. Lows will be in the 30s and 40s, highs in the 70s on Monday.

All will be quiet and smoke will continue to stream across the state from west to east Monday through Wednesday. Expect air quality to be better overall in the days to come than it was at the end of last week.

Another cold front on Wednesday will bring a chance of rain mainly to northwest Montana. A stronger system arrives on Friday packing another punch of cool air and more rain. For now, Labor Day weekend looks like it will feel a lot like fall with highs in the 60s.
