A heavy band of showers continues to push north through Eastern Montana this morning.

Localized flooding is possible with rain rates of an inch per hour is some isolated spots within this band of showers.

The rest of North-Central Montana is waking up to a soggy start as well.

More rain continues to push through all of our area today.

Some showers may be heavy at times.

An inch of rain is possible today through Saturday evening in some areas (on top of what we already received yesterday).

Flooding concerns grow for Southern Montana through the weekend.

Next week, we are tracking another system that is moving into the state.

This could create widespread flooding concerns across North-Central and Eastern Montana.

Models are still split on exactly how much rain this second system will bring, but with only 2-4″ more, flooding concerns will jump through our area early next week.
