A few scattered flurries remain a possibility Tuesday morning.

The best potential for snow today will be in the Little Belts and Little Snowy Mountains.

The Little Belts may see an additional 1 to 3 inches and 3 to 5 inches in the Little Snowies.

The colder air mass that helped to instigate the snow will continue to exit the region today.

Daytime highs are expected to remain in the high 30s today before the warmer air moves in.

Skies will continue to clear on Wednesday and temperatures will return to the low 40s.

The same can't be said for Northeastern Montana as colder air will remain camped out in this region.

Strong high pressure will continue building on Thursday allowing for highs to climb well above average once again.

Forecast models are hinting at some wind on Thursday and Friday as this ridge continues to build.

Gusts around 20 to 25 mph are a possibility both days.

Temperatures are expected to reach the low 50 both Saturday and Sunday.
