Sunshine continues on Monday with highs ranging from the mid 60s to low 70s across the region.
Rain showers will begin along the Idaho state line early Tuesday and expand across the region. Temperatures into the 60s on Tuesday may provide enough energy for thunder to be heard around Bozeman and Livingston. There will be a wide variety in precipitation across the region, but in all cases it will be significant. A large portion of Southwest Montana could see over half an inch of moisture. Snow on mountain passes and the threat of rock slides are travel concerns. Creeks and streams will continue to rise into Wednesday. Valley snow is possible on Wednesday as cool air arrives. The storm exits the region on Thursday, but a wet pattern is expected into the weekend.
