A potent Pacific cold front will move across western Montana tonight and Friday. Valley rain and drizzle in the Missoula and Kalispell areas overnight and around Butte after midnight and in Bozeman in the early morning. High mountain snow. Marias Pass will see 3 to 6 inches of snow.
Gusty winds behind the front. A WIND ADVISORY Friday for Flathead Lake where southwest winds will blow 15 to 25 mph with gusts up to 30 and 40 mph. We all will experience gusts up to 25 to 35 mph. Lows in the 30s to around 40 with highs in the 50s.
Partly to mostly sunny Saturday and milder with highs in the upper 50s and 60s. Slight chance of showers Sunday around Glacier Park and Kalispell. But for the most part a nice Easter with partly to mostly sunny skies and highs in the upper 50s and 60s.
A good chance of rain and snow and colder by the middle of next week.
