Light snow showers with minimal impact are possible in Southwest Montana early Saturday evening. Showers taper off overnight and we become calm again for Sunday morning. Lows will drop into the teens and single digits for most areas.
Clouds will cover the region again by midday Sunday and snow showers from a wave of Pacific moisture will begin to impact our western counties, including Missoula and Kalispell, during the afternoon. Valley snow accumulation will be light.
Expect 1 to 2 inches by Monday morning in Kalispell with slightly higher amounts possible in West Glacier, the Swan Valley, the Avon/Ovando/Helmville areas, and Georgetown Lake. Expect a dusting to around an inch of snowfall around the state. We will warm up from highs in the low 30s on Sunday to the middle 40s in some cases on Monday. A rain and snow mix will continue with subsequent waves of showers through Wednesday. Kalispell will likely switch over to all snow again for a time on Tuesday as another dose of cold air reaches the Flathead Valley.
Afternoon temperatures will remain above freezing elsewhere through next week. Already it appears that more wet weather will be in store for us next weekend.
