A sunny weekend continues on Sunday. Expect warmer than average temperatures in the 80s west of the divide. In Southwest Montana expect temperatures in the mid to upper 70s.
Conditions begin to change early Monday morning as an area of low pressure, which leads to clouds and rain, gets dragged north by the current wind pattern over the western half of the country. A slight chance for a shower or thunderstorm will be possible in Southwest Montana on Monday. Cloud cover will linger through Tuesday across the region. A light sprinkle is possible early Tuesday in the Missoula and Kalispell areas, but these regions will stay mostly dry through the week.
Warm temperatures and sunny skies return for the middle of the week with some areas seeing highs 15 degrees above the average for this time of year. A return to wet, cool weather is expected Friday into next weekend.
