First Alert 48 Hour Forecast

Cloud cover will blanket valleys in our western counties for the rest of the weekend. This will keep temperatures in the mid teens to low 20s overnight and through the day on Sunday around Kalispell, Polson, Libby, and Thompson Falls.

We will see temperatures near zero again in the Missoula and Bitterroot valleys, all while watching for that cloud deck to develop, which would further limit warming later in the week.

In Southwest Montana it will be another subzero night in most locations with mostly sunny skies on Sunday. There is a slight chance for snow showers around Yellowstone Park.

We will start to warm up midweek after a weak system moves into the area. There will be a slight chance of a shower in Kalispell Wednesday. The next chance for snow and/or rain will be on Friday. The Friday system should break valley inversions, meaning temperatures will soar toward 40 degrees with breezy conditions.

Overall, the forecast remains fairly dry in the week ahead.
