First Alert 48 Hour Forecast

Scattered rain and snow showers will diminish by the afternoon. Cloudy to mostly cloudy skies with highs in the low to mid 30s. Areas of fog will develop for the Tuesday morning commute. Tuesday will be largely uneventful with a few light showers around the state.

Another system will impact Montana Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. Expect moderate snowfall for all valleys in the region.  Valleys could see 1 to 4 inches of snow, with 4 to 8 inches at pass level.

A colder air mass will arrive by the end of the week with temperatures only reaching the upper 20s by Friday. The best chance for snow will be in Kalispell on Christmas Eve and in Bozeman on Christmas Day. Missoula and Butte are pretty much even for snow chances on both days.

Colder air remains in place for the weekend with a slight chance for showers. More cold air could be on the way for early next week. Stay with us.
