Fog expected to continue this morning, especially along the Hi-Line. The fog will continue to affect the visibility and can reach as low as one quarter mile at times. This fog will diminish throughout the morning and early afternoon hours, giving way to more sunshine for today.
Temperatures will be very mild and above average today for Central Montana due to the high pressure system, which has been stationary over the state the past few days. We'll see highs reach into the lower fifties in the Capital City this afternoon. Temperatures will be cooler in the north and northeastern counties as a cold air mass from Canada is sticking around.
Overnight lows will go below freezing, so any snow that melts on the roads during the day will likely re-freeze overnight and cause some patchy black ice. Keep this in mind while traveling this evening or tomorrow morning.
Widespread flooding is no longer a concern due to the snow pacts re-freezing overnight, but it doesn't rule out all flooding concerns. Broadwater county still remains under a Flood Watch, where flooding has already been observed. Please report any flooding to the National Weather Service.
Temperatures will remain mild through Wednesday before the next weather system tracks in for Wednesday evening through Thursday, bringing in cooler air and the possibility of rain, snow, freezing rain and even sleet.
Once this system makes landfall, the STORMTracker weather team will have a better idea on how it will affect us here in the treasure state.
