The large ridge of high pressure that has been in control of our weather will finally begin to break down on Tuesday.

This means cooler temperatures for most of the area.

However, in Southwest Montana, where inversions have been a problem thanks to sinking air, temperatures may actually bump up a few degrees, and hazy skies will clear.

Skies will remain clear Monday night, but as high pressure moves away clouds will increase through the day Tuesday.

Expect overnight lows as cool as the single digits in the southwestern valleys, but in the teens for most of the area.

Highs Tuesday will be in the low to mid 30s.

Cool air continues to push in the next few days, and incoming pacific moisture means snow is likely by Thursday.

It’s still too early to talk snow totals, but widespread accumulating snow is expected Thursday and possibly lingering into Friday.
