A storm system will drop into central and eastern Montana Saturday. This has the potential to spark off a few isolated snow showers around the Marias Pass area Saturday and to the Bozeman area late Saturday night and early Sunday morning. The passage of this system will help relieve us of fog in the Flatehead and Mission Valleys Saturday morning. Temperatures Friday night will range from the upper single digits to right around 20 degrees.
A Pacific storm system arrives for the second half of the weekend. Shower chances will be slightly higher for Kalispell late Sunday. It looks like precipitation will begin as snow along the Idaho state line and slowly warm up as we head through the night. Snowfall amounts for the weekend look unimpressive so far. Everyone has a chance for showers in the early part of next week. It looks like the Kalispell area will stay cool for the longest, and will thus have the best chance for accumulating snow. Elsewhere, we will have periods of snow and periods of rain or a mix. Showers will taper off in the middle of the week with highs in the middle 30s.
