First Alert 48 Hour Forecast

A very quiet weather pattern is expected across western Montana through the holiday weekend and beyond into next week.  We can expect clear, cool nights and sunny, breezy and hot days through the period.  A stalled front along the divide will bring a few clouds to that area along with a mountain sprinkle on Thursday.  Saturday, July 4th, we can expect winds up to 30 mph.  This will further increase the fire danger across the region.

Lows in the upper 40s in Butte to the 50s elsewhere.  Highs will be in the 80s in Butte and Bozeman to the 90s in Missoula and Kalispell.  The mercury will flirt with 90 in Bozeman on Friday and Saturday.
