First Alert 48 Hour Forecast

Areas of fog are beginning to develop this morning.  Missoula, Kalispell, and Salmon will see low clouds and fog that will turn to hazy conditions during the afternoon. Record high temperatures are possible again today across Southwest Montana, with several areas in Western Montana reaching record values.  Highs will range from the low 60s in Hamilton and Dillon to the upper 30s in the Missoula Valley. Most communities will see highs in the mid 40s to mid 50s.

The calm, spring-like weather will be  interrupted Tuesday night and Wednesday morning by a weak area of rain and snow. Light accumulations of snow are possible on our southern passes and light rain will move as far north as Missoula. Whether it's rain or snow showers for Butte and Bozeman at that time largely depends on the exact timing of the showers and how far north they push. This is still a bit uncertain at this time, so continue to check for our latest forecast. Meteorologist Adam Painter will be on tonight at 5, 6, and 10 tracking this storm and its impacts.

We return to stable weather again starting midday Wednesday and continuing for the rest of the week, but at much cooler temperatures.

Weekend Always in View: Highs will remain in the mid and upper 30s this weekend. Shower chances stay small.
