We are tracking a cold front that will bring much needed rain to Northwest Montana today. Unfortunately, thunderstorms are also possible. Due to the threat of lightning from these storms, a Fire Weather Warning will be in place for this afternoon in the Kootenai National Forest, encompassing an area from Kalispell to Libby and Troy. Otherwise, partly to mostly cloudy with highs in the 70s and 80s with lows in the upper 40s and low 50s.
Southwest Montana will have a better chance of showers and thunderstorms Wednesday, with widespread showers and storms area wide by Friday and Saturday. We will warm up in our western counties late week to highs in the 90s.
