First Alert 48 Hour Forecast

FLOOD ADVISORY until 8:15 pm for low-lying areas around Missoula, Drummond, Bearmouth, Anaconda, Butte, Philipsburg, and the Lolo Creek burn area. Salmon and the Mustang burn area are also under an advisory. Slow moving showers and storms will have the potential to dump a lot of concentrated rainfall in a short period of time.

Showers and  thunderstorms will develop again today. Highs will be in the 60s and lower 70s. The daily threat of showers will continue Thursday with slightly warmer temperatures. Friday will see less coverage from showers and storms and highs in the upper 60s to upper 70s.

Over the weekend highs will reach the mid 70s to low 80s with a chance for a few showers and thunderstorms, mainly over mountainous areas. Rain chances will be higher on Saturday.

We are tracking our next storm system that will arrive as early as Monday. After a warm weekend, this has the makings for a day of widespread thunderstorms as things currently stand. Unsettled weather will continue through the early part of next week.
