As for central Montana, we can expect some scattered snow showers today. These are a result of the remaining moisture from the low pressure system. Most of the snow will be seen in the mountains of Central and Southwest Montana and along the Continental Divide as well.
Drier conditions are on the horizon through mid-week due to high pressure at the surface.
