First Alert 48 Hour Forecast

Very nice spring weather will prevail across western Montana through early Wednesday.  We can expect clear skies Monday night with lows in the low to mid 30s.  Sunny and warmer Tuesday with highs in the 70s

A cold front will enter the area Wednesday.  Moisture will be lacking, so there is only a slight chance of a shower west of the divide.  Partly sunny with gusty winds.  Highs cooling to the 60s in Missoula, Butte and Kalispell but warming to around 70 in Bozeman in advance of the front.  By evening, there will be a somewhat better chance of showers around Butte and Bozeman and continuing into Thursday south of I-90 in the Bozeman area.

Partly to mostly sunny Thursday afternoon and Friday with highs in the 60s.  More of the same is expected this coming weekend.
