First Alert 48 Hour Forecast

LAKE WIND ADVISORY for Flathead Lake until 9 pm. Gusty winds up to 30 mph have the potential to produce 2 to 3 foot waves on the south and west shores.

A few thunderstorms will cross areas south of I-90 during the afternoon and evening. An isolated strong storm is possible.

Our cool weather pattern will come to an abrupt end on Monday with mostly sunny skies and highs mostly in the 80s. Lows Monday morning will be on the chilly side however, in the low to mid 40s.

Another cool system will reach the area on Tuesday. We expect more moisture to get across the divide and into Northwest Montana for some much needed rain in the area. Scattered showers and/or thunderstorms will continue on Wednesday around the area due to this system. Temperatures will remain in the 80s with lows in the upper 40s and low 50s.

Southwest Montana will have a chance for a shower or two each day midweek before everyone has a chance of thunderstorms Friday and Saturday. We will warm up in our western counties late week to highs in the 90s.
